Overall, these movements achieved great success (though there were some "setbacks"--such as Romania's loss of Moldova in 1940 and the "loss" of the Serb-majority areas of Bosnia after the collapse of Yugoslavia).
Anyway, what I am curious is this--could we see any European-style ethnic unification movements in the Third World? If so, could any such movements actually succeed in the Third World?
Also, for the record, I suspect that the likeliest candidates among Third World ethnic groups for such a movement would be the Somalis and the Kurds. However, I am curious as to whether or not there are any other Third World ethnic groups which would likewise have a serious chance of creating such a movement.
(In addition to this, Yes, as Alex Milman previously said, there needs to be some kind of feeling of national solidarity in order for genuine nations to emerge in the Third World.)
Anyway, any thoughts on this?
