National and Regional Symbolic Boundaries among European Elites: A Qualitative Interview Study of the Higher Officials of the European Union

PhD project

Completed in August 2019

The process of European integration and the transfer of political competences to "Brussels" have led to the development of a new administrative elite around the European institutions. This project asked to what extent this group develops a common European identification as well as what role the heterogeneous national and regional backgrounds play for processes of group-making.
