It is the belief that a country should only be populated by one ethnic group and everyone else should be kicked out.

It’s like saying that a nation should be based on one specific ethnic group. And it’s often exclusionary because people of other ethnicities are not seen as real members of the community.

as opposed to civic nationalism, where in theory anyone can be part of the political community if they uphold certain ideals and duties of citizenship.

On the southern border of Turkiye lives villages of ethnic Kurds.

The Turkish government tried to kill them off a few times. Turkey wants their nation to be all turks.
