Dr. Nahed Habiballah presented a paper “National Identity and Post-Orientalism” in which she distinguishes between two types of nation-states in relation to their integration into the global world in an era of Globalization. Those nation-states are defined by their roles as either “producers” or “consumers” of knowledge.
