Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This network assessed the extent to which European citizenship could and does promote the identification of European with the institutions of the Union. It investigated three broad approaches: the civic nationalist, the cosmopolitan globalist and a mixed model, elements of each being present within existing EU and Member State definitions and arrangements. All three were assessed in terms of their compatibility with national and other allegiances, on the one hand, and their ability to avoid invidious and potentially destabilising exclusions of particular categories of persons, on the other. This final report presents the main conclusions of the research.
