This chapter look at the hyphen between nation and state in the term in nation-state. It theorises that the nation is ideologically and culturally constructed as opposed to the state. Minorities have to be integrated in both formations. However while they are legally part of the state and are citizens, they are excluded from the nation at many levels. Thus they live a hyphenated existence, between two formations.

Keywords:   Nation-state, group identity, nationalism history, kultuurnation, jus soli, jus sanguinis, church and nation, group rights, Cantle report, multicultural citizenship
