Irredentism. What is it – News

Irredentism can be caused by various reasons, such as the loss of territory due to war, peace agreements, or the division of the country. Nations or ethnic groups may seek to annex territories in which they constitute a majority or which have historical and symbolic significance for their national identity.

An example of irredentism is the desire to unite all Germans in one state, which was motivated by the loss of territory following World War I and the Treaty of Versailles. Similar aspirations are also present in other parts of Europe, such as Northern Ireland and Catalonia.
