Gosia Wochowska, PhD
…what is the link between local, national and
European citizenship?
…why some citizens fell ‘more European’ than
others?
…do we need to promote Europe?
Have you ever asked yourself:
Aims of this session:
- To better understand the core theme of ENSURE: European
citizenship and Euroscepticism
- To better understand your own role as a policy-maker, a
politician, or an activist in the European context
- To contribute to the final publication of ENSURE.
The main ENSURE’s goal
To increase involvement of
citizens from rural areas
in the development of
solidary Europe.
Europe for Citizens – hand in hand with EU
agenda - EU agenda (EfC priorities are changing with time)
- Fundamental values embedded into EfC: diversity, equal access, diversity,
gender equality (reference: EU Charter of Fundamental Rights)
- Policies shape identities, define expected practices , codify values
- Formal and informal learning, and voluneering: a promise to create a pan-European
civic arena of engaged citizens
- European vs. local interets / general vs. individual
European citizenship – Europe vs. nation?
„What is the glue?” (R. Bellamy)
- Citizenship used to be directly and inseparably linked with nationality.
- Rights with no obligations (patriotism, defence/ army)
- European citizenship as a new bizzare concept that common decisions can be taken
by people who are not sharing the same nationality.
- At first, European citizensip was „an economic citizenship”, then the afective aspect
was added. Thus, it is a dynamic and constructivist concept.
European citizenship- components
1. Rights
2. Membership
3. Participation
4. Identity (sense of belonging)
5. Responsibility mix - responsibilities towards the citizens. What sort of rules does a
society need? How should society be governed?
6. Governance arrangements – for what level of participation do the public bodies allow?
(J. Jenson, The European Union’s Citizenship Regime. Creating Norms and Building, „Comparative European
Politics“)
Europe for Citizens – hand in hand with
EU agenda
Jean-Claude Juncker’s Commission (2014)
The Van den Brande report „How to strengthen dialogue with EU citizens
Future of Europe: White Paper and all five reflection papers” (topics from new
technologies, society and jobs, globalisation, security, to the rise of populism)

  • 6. European citizenship – Europe vs. nation? „What is the glue?” (R. Bellamy) - Citizenship used to be directly and inseparably linked with nationality. - Rights with no obligations (patriotism, defence/ army) - European citizenship as a new bizzare concept that common decisions can be taken by people who are not sharing the same nationality. - At first, European citizensip was „an economic citizenship”, then the afective aspect was added. Thus, it is a dynamic and constructivist concept.
  • 7. European citizenship- components 1. Rights 2. Membership 3. Participation 4. Identity (sense of belonging) 5. Responsibility mix - responsibilities towards the citizens. What sort of rules does a society need? How should society be governed? 6. Governance arrangements – for what level of participation do the public bodies allow? (J. Jenson, The European Union’s Citizenship Regime. Creating Norms and Building, „Comparative European Politics“)
