Globalization impacts the order of society, nationhood, and statehood in Indonesia. One change brought about is the emergence of public behavior that does not reflect the values of nationalism. This calls for the revitalization of character education as part of an effort to maintain
the values of nationalism in the community. This article aims to provide an overview of the importance and urgency to revitalize character education for nationalism through a qualitative approach. Previously, the Government revitalized the nationalism concept education policy implemented during the New Order era. Based on recent findings, there are a number of factors
supporting and hindering the policy implementation of nationalism education at present. The role of character education is found to be notably significant; therefore, the option to revive character education to maintain nationalism values in Indonesia is empirical and logical.
