Experiencing European Integration

Chapter 7 focuses on the negative externalities of increased transactions on people who do not interact across borders themselves. Multilevel analyses show that in highly transnationalized countries, individual transnationalism has a greater impact on EU support than in less transnationalized countries. In other words, higher degrees of macro-level transnationalization exacerbate the relationship between individual transnationalism and EU support. In highly transnationalized countries, people who rarely interact across borders are even more likely to be eurosceptical than in less transnationalized countries. This finding suggests that in highly globalized societies, the integration–demarcation divide found by Kriesi and colleagues (2008) is even more pronounced, as people who rarely interact across borders might feel overwhelmed and marginalized by the transnationalization of their environment.
