Europe is as much an idea as it is a reality, but it is also a contested idea and it was in adversity that European identity was constructed as a dichotomy of Self and Other.

In this sense it is a very good one, moreover because it consideres the idea of Europe from a global point of view and it attempts to deconstructed the idea of unity that the bureaucracy of the EU is attempting to impose.
