Citizenship, identity and immigration in the European Union: between past and future

Kostakopoulou, Dora (2001) Citizenship, identity and immigration in the European Union: between past and future, Manchester, GB, Manchester University Press, 224pp.

Record type: Book


European citizenship, identity and immigration are constitutive issues facing the European polity and have important consequences for domestic political systems. This study, of citizenship within the setting of the nation-state and comparative immigration policies, concentrates on their theorization in a post-national, post-statist context, such as the EU, and on alternative European institutional designs. By blending normative political theory with European integration, this volume develops an original theoretical framework for European Union citizenship, identity and immigration as well as a set of policy proposals for institutional reform. Challenging the conventionally held views in these areas, the author argues that a constructive model of European citizenship and identity is vital to the construction of a democratic, heterogeneous and inclusive European polity. The book shouldappeal to academics and political actors concerned with issues of European governance as well as to undergraduate and postgraduate students of European politics, European integration, European Union Law, political theory and sociology.
