Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to offer an approach to understanding the development of the idea of federalism during the process of European integration following the Second World War and its impact on the Brexit referendum. Quentin Skinner’s methodology for rhetorical analysis and the study of the meaning of political concepts as determined by their context and use is applied in order to describe the changes in attitude. This can also help explain why there is no consensus on whether the European Union is a federation or not. More specifically, significant persons and documents promoting or rejecting a European federation and depicting the British role in it are analyzed. Despite the importance of economic and immigration issues, the conclusion of this study is that the conflict between the idea of European federalism and British sovereignty was a primary factor determining the outcome of the Brexit referendum and may have far-reaching consequences in the future.
