      [From the Introduction]. Not long ago European Leaders celebrated the unification of our continent beneath the Athens Acropolis. The signing of the Constitution for Europe is a milestone of a development which started more than fifteen years ago with the unexpected fall of the Berlin Wall and the German reunification. All European countries - but especially those in the East of the continent - have hence been going through exciting and sometimes troubling times. After the recent events in the Ukraine we know that these times are not over yet. Although EU-politicians do not stop to proclaim a finally “Unified Europe” - and thereby meaning the enlarged European Union, which is not quite the same - it seems that only few European citizens feel yet ready to fully consent to this notion. Polls clearly show that only a marginal minority feels themselves as just Europeans, the greater part would rather agree to be European next to their "true" nationality, meaning for example German, Dutch or Irish.
