Who Feels European? Measurement of European Identity and Differences Across Individuals

  • Michael Bruter

Abstract

In Part I of this book, we saw that it remains difficult to understand what exactly citizens mean when they claim that, indeed, they ‘identify’ with a given political community. Because identity can be ‘prisoner of language’ and therefore difficult to measure and compare across individuals, the goal of this chapter is to propose an operationalisable theory of political identities based on the insights of Chapters 1 and 2.
