    We attempt to focus on a specific comprehension of a potential European identity(ies). From the official launching of the symbols of the EC in 1986, there has been a prolific literature on identity, imaginary, culture related to other aspects such as citizenship and immigration. Besides the economic, legal and political considerations, we did not find, from what was available in Europe, mainly in French and English, coherent analysis of the legitimating process underlying these analyses and their use in the political sphere. Therefore, from the beginning of the 1990s, most probably as an answer to the challenge and to the equilibrium shift arisen from the end of the geopolitical configuration that lasted for almost 40 years, a specific research project was drawn by a team of the Institut d’Etudes Européennes in Louvain-la-Neuve, lead by Professor Michel Dumoulin. In this specific project, I do deal with the historical part and with the computer-assisted content analysis of the Presidential speeches (1985- ) run by Dr. Robert Hogenraad. From this very textual approach, I developed in the logics of my Ph.D. thesis specific analysis of the video material available on European integration history.
