Irish nationalism and European integration

The official redefinition of the island of Ireland

Katy Hayward

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The most detailed study to date of official discourse in twentieth-century Ireland - indeed of any EU member-state Provides an innovative analysis of the EU/nation-state relationship, i.e. provides compelling evidence that nationalism and European integration are complementary (rather than competing) processes
  • Reveals previously under-explored dimension of the peace process, i.e. the conceptual changes made by Irish politicians in order to justify major about-turns in ideology and policy on Irish unity Offers the most detailed cross-party analysis of Irish official policy and discourse towards Northern Ireland, before, during and since the Troubles
