A case for national identity is often invoked to supplement liberalism regarding the inner difficulties that liberal theories have to explain their membership, assure stability and produce endorsement.
So, it seems that national identity may also be required for justice.
While this controversy continues, I argue that a different approach is available.
We can define a conception of legitimacy independently from a conception of justice, and then ask what legitimacy requires from our national allegiances.
If everything goes well, much of the controversy from justice disappears as we find that the case for cultural nationalism may be illegitimate for liberal democracies. Keywords: nationalism, distributive justice, legitimacy, political self-determination, minority rights, majority rights. Received: 24 - 08 - 2016.
