Locations, Loyalties and Labels

  • Alistair Ross
Part of the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship Series book series ( CAL)


The use and meaning of terms such as nation, citizenship, country, state and Europe varies across generations and between different states, and young people’s identities are related to their socio-political constructions of these terms. A variety of models characterise the plasticity of social construction of political and locational narratives of identities. This study is based on empirical data of 2000 young people at 104 different locations discussing these issues, and shows how their constructions contingently shift as the lens through which they focus changes. 324 discussions conducted with small groups in 29 European states between 2011 and 2016 reflects the diversity of views of the indigenous population, those of migrants and settler origin, and the hybridities increasingly characteristic of European societies.
