Contents A Primer on Transnational Identities -- The impact of European Integration on the UK, Ireland and Germany -- a historical-institutionalist overview -- How do individuals in Europe perceive of European integration? -- Large-scale survey Analyses through Eurobarometer -- Newspaper Discourses and Public Spheres -- What have we learned from this Survey? -- A result-oriented Synopsis -- Future challenges for transnational identity formation in the EU
Summary "This book examines the state of transnational identification among citizens in the EU as a result of post-Maastricht integration measures, such as the completion of the Common Market, the introduction of the Euro, the initiation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the Constitutional debate. Public opinion, interview and print-media analyses in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany confirm the limited effects of EU policy changes to the extent that national political cultures and mass media orientations are compatible with the goals of EU integration. This book serves as a valuable tool for students of European politics and society"-- Provided by publisher
Through the application of public opinion, interview, and print-media analyses, this book provides evidence that the state of transnational identification among citizens in the EU as a result of post-Maastricht integration measures, such as the completion of the Common Market, the introduction of the Euro, the initiation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy etc. in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Germany had limited effects in the member states to the extent that national political cultures and mass media orientations are compatible with the goals of EU integration. Policy recommendations are derived by reviewing the complex relationship between EU policies and structural factors such as immigration, ageing and the mediatization of politics in which European integration occurs
