(De)constructing European Citizenship: Political Mobilization and Collective Identity Formation among Immigrants in Sweden and Spain
2008 (English)In: Media, Democracy and European Culture / [ed] Ib Bondebjerg and Peter Madsen, Bristol: Intellect , 2008, 267-284 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The political construction of a European citizenship and a “European identity” is a project whose support among the diverse European peoples is uncertain indeed. Questions as how notions of citizenship, collective identity, and the more abstract sense of belonging to a community are being transformed by immigration are becoming increasingly salient in national and European discourse and policy. I am interested in the role immigrants themselves play in such dynamics, as social and political actors.
