National Identity in CEE - the EP Elections' Reflection

How do political parties shape national identity and how do they communicate issues related to national identity to their electorate? What kind of strategies do they use? Does their approach even amount to a political strategy or are they truly convinced about their representations of national identity? 

This interdisciplinary conference, which builds upon the research project National Identities in CEE. Political Discourses, Educational Solutions, brings together the analysis of political parities’ activities in the sphere of national identity and a focus on one of the parties’ target groups – the young generation.

The event is organized by EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy in cooperation with Anglo-American University
