As the European Union emerges from several recent crises, its oft-decried democratic deficit remains one of the most important challenges to further integration. This panel address this issue and brings together papers which explore various aspects of the current processes of community-building in the transnational space of Europe. European identification is analysed through its framing in the public discourse and its connection to emotions, in relation to different contents of identification and trust in institutions, as well as in its link to migration attitudes and migrant identities. The results of such multidimensional examination of the topic will illuminate the dynamics of supranational identification in a post-crisis Europe.
