Summary

Challenging the orthodox view that European integration is eroding national identity, this groundbreaking volume links identity, citizenship and democratic legitimacy in a unique way by focusing on key themes: ¢ the suggestion that the EMU project is much more than an economic enterprise: it will invade national sovereignty and destroy cherished national symbols. ¢ relating assertive regional and ethnic identities to evolving concepts of EU citizenship and a European identity. ¢ the danger the whole European project may be in if a genuine EU-level citizenship is not created. The role of frontiers in the integration process is ambiguous and double-edged. Frontier zones once had a life of their own and, ironically, integration emphasizes frontiers in a new way. Written by authors of different nationalities and disciplines, this timely volume is accessible for readers from many backgrounds, and will lead them to a clearer understanding of the metamorphosing ’New Europe’.
