Contested Identities in Costa Rica

Liz Harvey-Kattou

Liverpool University Press

The conclusion of the book revisits and answers the initial questions described in the introduction: who or what counts as tico? How have challenged to national identity been constructed in the country? It posits that the wave of nationalist rhetoric seen globally in this second decade of the twenty-first century stems from the same processes and beliefs that created the tico norm, thus creating fierce oppositions within nations between those wanting an end to exclusionary national identities and those who want to build up their borders even further.
