    Abstract

    The purpose of my paper is to show that the substantial support for ultra-nationalist and regionalist political parties in Western Europe has hindered attempts by the European Union to fully institute ideas of pan-Europeanism within its area. The strength of these parties show that, despite the forewarnings of classical liberalism on the dangers of European nationalisms to European peace and prosperity, separatism and xenophobia are still attractive sentiments to many who seek new solutions to social and economic problems. The traditions of pan-Europeanism and ultra-nationalism/regionalism have thus clashed in today's European political theater, with no sign of settlement. But it is also the position of this paper that there exist several other, largely untapped solutions to this problem of promoting European solidarity and peace that could be called upon. These solutions disregard the grand schemes of liberalism and the "inevitabilities" of realism and try to look at inter-ethnic conflict from fresh perspectives.
