(p.15) 2 Transnationalism
Experiencing European Integration

Theresa Kuhn

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 first summarizes how European integration has set the stage for increased cross-border transactions. Next, it conceptualizes transnationalism, thereby distinguishing between macro-level transnationalism and individual-level transnationalism. Macro-level transnationalization, as captured by the KOF index of globalization (Dreher et al. 2008), is further distinguished into economic, social, and political dimensions. It is shown that there are considerable differences among European member states with respect to their level of transnationalization. Individual-level transnationalism is conceptualized as a tri-dimensional phenomenon, consisting of the dimensions of transnational background, transnational practices, and transnational human capital. The remainder of Chapter 2 presents the operationalization of individual transnationalism in Eurobarometer waves 65.1 and 67.1.
