A wide range of issues related to attempts at nation-building in formerly colonial African and Asian countries is discussed in the interview with the corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, vice-director of the Institute for African Studies, Dmitri Bondarenko, around his new book “Postcolonial Nations in Historical and Cultural Context”. These issues are considered in a broader cultural, historical, and geographical context that covers countries of the Global North and the Global South from Antiquity to the present. The central topic is multiplicity of manifestations of phenomena such as nation, modernity, secularity, and democracy. The prospects of multiculturalism as the basis for emerging and transforming nations are assessed.
