  1. The deepening integration of the EU: a step towards the formation of a European identity
  2. The big challenge: European diversity
  3. The solution to the European dilemma: the 'Constitutional Patriotism'

The European Union requires a political and cultural alignment of its member states to deepen the integration. This 'Europeanization' is the cause of an identity crisis. The identity of the 21st century Europe has the big challenge of encompassing national, regional, religious and linguistic identities. In fact, the potential framework for a European identity under construction has to take into account the multitude of cultures territorialized national and regional, and non-territorialized minorities and immigrants. Ultimately, Europe will rise or fall on the issue of identity, a concept linked to the nation-sate; however, can the ideology of the nation-state be combined with European diversity? How can such a plurality be turned into a common identity through egalitarianism and the maintenance of different territorial and cultural identities as political markers? The EU members efforts to converge tends to consider the future formation of a common identity. Nevertheless, it will encounter many obstacles, such as cultural diversity and a lack of European civil society. The solution might be the creation of a new model based on multiculturalism and 'Constitutional Patriotism'.
