Nationalism(redirected from Nationalistic aspirations)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.
The philosophy in which one promotes the interests of one's own country or ethnic group over others. For example, nationalism may advocate secession of a region to form a new country in which one's own ethnic group predominates. What qualifies as a "nation" in nationalist terms is a matter of some disagreement.
