Leitner, Christine (2000) Walking the Tightrope – Cultural Diversity in the Context of European Integration. EIPASCOPE, 2000 (1). pp. 1-5.
We all know that there are cultural differences between the countries, regions and ethnic groups in Europe. We are also aware, however vaguely, that these differences have a significant bearing on the political systems and the behaviour of individual actors. However, as yet, there is little practical understanding so far of how and to what extent this cultural diversity influences the overall functioning of the European Union. The purpose of this article is to raise awareness of this issue and to illustrate approaches to addressing the cultural aspects of European institutional life in a more conscious and proactive way with the aim of improving the efficiency of European administrative and political cooperation.
