From little England to democratic Europe?
Political identity and the problems to which it gives rise have come to occupy a central place in English political debate because of the UK's membership of the European Union. Reviewing a recent account of nationalism, this article argues that a sense of political identity in general, and a sense of identity for European nations, need not rest on deep cultural or social foundations, but may be constituted through political practices. In the European case such practices need to be democratic in character and some institutional implications of this view are spelt out to illustrate the force of the argument. -Author
