    Abstract

    This paper attempts to describe and explain the factors and perceptions that contribute to support or reject European integration as well as the meaning political and labor union leaders attach to the idea of the European integration--including the interpretation of organizational preferences for the European Union in terms of intergovernmental or supranational perspectives. I am testing in this context the theory proposed by Smith (1991) on the role of the structure of opportunities and the constraints resulting from the process of European integration on the reproduction of national identity and the attachment to the state. The study analyzes the discourse on the nation-state and the European Union offered by the political, and labor union elite. I will give greater heed to the analysis of those perceptions that reflect discontent with the EU.
