Article 151 EC and European Identity

Article 151 EC and European Identity

(p.276) (p.277) 9 Article 151 EC and European Identity
Culture and European Union Law

Due to the way Article 151 of the EC Treaty attempts to deal with the heritage and cultural history that is shared by European people because of their European significance, the underlying principles for this Article involve cultivating support for the European Union and strengthening the identification of Europe as a cultural and geographical area. The Council believes that the mutual knowledge of various European cultures and how such cultures give much importance to diversity, democracy, freedom, and solidarity, plays no small part in fostering European integration. Community activity in terms of cultural affairs will experience significant effects if Article 151 is indeed focused on advocating measures of European integration. While the European Union already possesses its own judicial system and political institutions and is expanding its concerns to defence and policing, this chapter examines whether a European identity should be established for the further development of the European Union.
