Manufacturing Citizenship, Education and Nationalism in Europe, South Asia and China.
Gobalization has globalized everything. Right from trade, politics, migration to education. Nothing is now isolated and could vigorously be affected by globalization.
Political boundaries and lines now exist only in maps as symbolic demarcation of political entity and sovereignty.
Youth and education are the two things that are now focal points of nation states. Any mishandling or downturn in them may have serious repercussions for them both immediate and of course long term. This is the reason why all states are doing more and more to protect them from the ebb and flow of globalization and make truly only for them!!

Thus the process of manufacturing only shinning and gleaming goods in students and the youth mind-factory for their country, the bad and underperformed aspects of history are hidden and under carpeted.
Like a line of production in an industry only perfect and vetted products to be supplied to the market while ill- shaped and low quality products must to garbage.
