This chapter explores the concept of European identity. It is shown that there are ‘Europeans’ in Europe, but such identification is limited. This identity appeals to a small segment of the population, mostly made up of the elite and cosmopolitan. In short, a European identity exists but within limitations that make it nearly unrecognisable if seen against the political identities which have populated the landscape in the past two centuries.

Keywords:   European identity, identification, population
