Overview

Who Are the European? What Is Europe?: The Identity Chellenges of an Evolving Policy by Bahar Rumelili

Brings together critical contributions to the debates on the nature, salience, and boundaries of European identity. It focuses on how globalization and the European integration process are, on the one hand, multiplying transnational ties and cosmopolitan allegiances in Europe, and on the other hand, generating new insecurities that foster attachment to local and primordial identities.
