Terrorismo y nacionalismo después de 1968

Translated title of the contribution: Terrorism and Nationalism after 1968

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter examines the impact that 1968 and the decade of political protest that had preceded this moment had on key nationalist movements throughout Europe, and to what extent this movement heralded a shift towards armed revolutionary strategies. By studying cases from the United Kingdom, Spain and France, three countries in which the energies of 1968 broke differently, it is clear that whilst an influx of young, radical and motivated activists shaped nationalist protest in the decade to follow, it did not necessitate an armed reaction. It is shown that when armed groups did emerge, these movements were often internal divided on the importance assigned to socialist ideals. It is also argued that the reasons that these movements turned to violence were highly contextual and attempting to draw patterns from this period in time would miss the unique socio-political context of each case.
