  Article:   THE ROLE OF INTERCULTURALISM IN EUROPEAN INTEGRATION.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The paper deals with the subject of European integration and namely the aspects deriving from the need to reconcile different cultural identities across the EU. As the issues generated by such cultural differences can be dealt with in several ways, we explore both the multicultural and the intercultural approach, eventually reaching to the conclusion that interculturalism provides with superior tools for building a common European identity and a cultural environment that would support European integration. Also, we take the analysis further by studying how an intercultural approach could impact the European economical and social context: first by examining the cultural aspect of the economic environment and how more homogenous economic mechanisms could be achieved and second by exploring the impact that interculturalism can have on the relationship between nationalism and Europeanism.

Keywords: interculturalism; European integration; European identity; economic environment; cultural values and beliefs.
