The relation between the process of Europeanization and public opinion support for the EU is conceptualized and measured, in particular in connection with the main dimensions of EU citizenship: European identity, sense of EU representation, scope of governance. Experiences of deliberative democracy at the EU level are also discussed (Dr. PhD Francesco Olmastroni).
Learning outcomes include:
- Role of information and deliberation on people’s attitudes towards the EU and the EU policy-making process.
- Ability to increase knowledge on controversial issues when empirical data are available.
- Awareness about complexity in the conceptualization of EU citizenship and its relations to political representation and democratic governance.
