Between past and future

Theodora Kostakopoulou

Published by Manchester University Press

  • European citizenship, identity and immigration are constitutive issues facing the European polity and have important consequences for domestic political systems Blends normative political theory with European integration and develops an original theoretical framework for European Union citizenship, identity and immigration as well as a set of policy proposals for institutional reform Challenges the conventionally held views in these areas, by arguing that a model of European citizenship and identity is vital to the construction of a democratic, heterogeneous and inclusive European polity Crosses the boundaries of political science, law and philosophy
