In their relationship to Europe, both Britain and Romania are situated at the continent’s edge, but that is where any list of comparisons between the two countries usually ends. Certainly, both countries are members of the European Union, but their respective responses to the European Union differ markedly. Polls conducted by Eurobarometer consistently put Romanians among the most enthusiastic supporters of the European Union, and the British (along with the Greeks) among the least. But what are the historical roots of Romanian and British attitudes towards Europe and the European idea?

Young people in the UK today who are attracted to extremism are typically well educated. Given the weaknesses of this ideology in terms of its use of history, internal coherence of arguments and moral standards, its success with many educated young people requires explanation. The explanation, according to Dr. Farid, is multifaceted but education has a big role to play in curbing the trend.

EU Citizenship and the Market
The bulk of rights that come with EU citizenship are still related to
the internal market. Are Union citizens therefore defined above all as
consumers, workers or producers, rather than as politically empowered
citizens? Is the increasing expansion of this “market citizenship”
through ECJ rulings even undermining social solidarity? Or could these
rights, which allow European citizens to move to and settle in another
Member States, lead them to identify more closely with their fellow
The following publication addresses these questions and others derrivng from the project EU Citizenship and the Market
