Abstract

This paper discusses the dynamics of identity within the European Union. The authors describe the necessary preconditions for the development of European Identity; including the value of freedom, equal rights and a re-conceptualization of the concept of solidarity in the context of citizenship. Highlighted are how debates about immigrant rights, the rise of neo-racist movements, and the role of political parties create a sociopolitical context for the reassertion of nation-state power, giving rise to neo-national and neo-communitarian sentiments. In contrast, the construction of European Identity requires the development of intercultural competencies and shared framings of common interests.
