The Effect of Individual Transnationalism on EU Support and European Identity

Experiencing European Integration

Chapter 4 tests a central hypothesis of this book: the more transnational an individual, the more likely he or she is to support European integration. To this aim, the chapter analyses the impact of individual transnationalism on EU membership support (EB 65.1, 2006) and on the likelihood of considering oneself European (EB 67.1, 2007). The chapter also provides analyses for each dimension of individual transnationalism (transnational background, practices, and human capital), and for each country separately. Findings strongly support Hypothesis 1 by showing that individual transnationalism has a very strong and highly significant effect on EU support and European identity. What is more, each of the three dimensions of individual transnationalism significantly increases the likelihood of pro-European orientations.
