Weiler, JHH. (1998) To be a European Citizen – Eros and Civilization. CES Working Paper, Vol. 1, no. 2, 1998. [Working Paper]
The two views are not altogether contradictory and I wish to track and explain elements of both. I have no interest in making predictions about the future of the concept and its attendant policies. But to the extent that ideas and symbols shape attitudes and, maybe even policy options, the discourse of European citizenship is important not only to the theory of European integration but also to its praxis. In this essay I build on work I have done in this field since 1995 though, in one fundamental respect - the articulation of the relationship between Member State nationality and Community citizenship - I have modified my earlier position significantly.
