Abstract:Does nationalism make interstate conflict more likely? I tackle this question by analyzing one of the most powerful sources of nationalism in the modern era—international sports. I first investigate several cases where surges of nationalism from sporting events led to military or political conflict between countries. I then analyze a regression discontinuity created by the format of the World Cup qualification process from 1958 to 2010. The results provide strong evidence that World Cup nationalism increases state aggression, especially for countries where soccer is the most popular sport.
