  O cartografiere a concepţiilor „populare” despre apartenenţa naţională în statele membre ale Uniunii Europene

    This paper aims to empirically grasp the "lay" models of national belonging in the European Union member states using data from the last wave of the European Values Study (2008). In the attempt to go beyond most conventional studies which incorporate ready-made analytical categories from the field of nationalism studies and which test popular representations against one or another of the dominant (ethnic versus civic) national models, our study proposes a typology of the ways in which the "nations" define themselves through the evaluation of several criteria drawing the boundaries between nationals and non-nationals. We thus produce a map of the social representations of national identities in the European Union and present the main lines of cohesion and division that organize this configuration.
