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
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.
