Thomas Risse argues that integration has had profound and long-term effects on the citizens of EU countries, most of whom now have at least a secondary European identity to complement their national identities. Risse also claims that we can see the gradual emergence of transnational European communities of communication.Exploring the outlines of this European identity and of the communicative spaces, Risse sheds light on some pressing questions: What do Europe and the EU mean in the various public debates? How do European identities and transnational public spheres affect policymaking in the EU? And how do they matter in discussions about enlargement, particularly Turkish accession to the EU? What will be the consequences of the growing contestation and politicization of European affairs for European democracy?This focus on identity allows Risse to address the democratic deficit of the EU, the disparity between the level of decision making over increasingly relevant issues for peoples' lives (at the EU) and the level where politics plays itself out--in the member states. He argues that the EU's democratic deficit can only be tackled through politicization and that debating Europe might prove the only way to defend modern and cosmopolitan Europe against the increasingly forceful voices of Euroskepticism.
