Branislav Radeljic

European Identity: Concept, Crisis and Consequences: Branislav Radeljic, Visiting Scholar, EU Center of Excellence, UC Berkeley

Lecture | July 25 | 7:30 p.m. | International House, Home Room

Branislav Radeljic, Visiting Scholar, EU Center of Excellence, UC Berkeley

International House, European Union Center

In 1973, the European Community introduced the concept of European identity in order to define and strengthen its position vis-à-vis other countries, and in world politics more broadly. Over time, it has become clear that European identity has to do much more with the presence of European otherness and ‘Others’, such as Muslims in Western Europe. In his talk, Professor Radeljic will address the (ir)relevance of the European identity discourse for European national identities and members of European otherness. Moreover, he will outline a number of possible challenges to a European identity, posed by some recent policy choices as well as future enlargements of the European Union.

This event is free. Registration required.

Co-Sponsored by the European Union Center of Excellence at UC Berkeley and UC Berkeley's International House

Professor Radeljic teaches International Politics within the School of Law and Social Sciences at University of East London, UK. He is the author of Europe and the Collapse of Yugoslavia: The Role of Non-State Actors and European Diplomacy (London and New York: I.B. Tauris, 2012), and the editor of Europe and the Post-Yugoslav Space (Farnham: Ashgate, 2013) and Debating European Identity: Bright Ideas, Dim Prospects (Oxford: Peter Lang, forthcoming 2014).

During his stay at the European Union Center of Excellence at the UC Berkeley, Branislav will be focusing on his new book project as well as a new undergraduate course on European Union politics.
