Delgado-Moreira, Juan M. (1997) "Understanding tangled hierarchies: European citizenship and transnationalism". In: UNSPECIFIED, Seattle, WA. (Unpublished)
The relation between nation-states, European citizenship, and transnationalism is analyzed on a theoretical level from a perspective that combines new institutionalism and complexity studies. In doing so the paper attempts to broaden the range of models that social scientists utilize to think about European citizenship. The launching of European identity, multiculturalism, of the advance of the transnationalist agenda further entangle a potentially conflictive situation without being able to reflect on their basic assumptions. Concepts such as tangled hierarchies and self-organization are invoked to expose how European identity and citizenship could relate to nation-states, as well as to argue in favor of subsidiary and national citizenship.
