Editorial Reviews

"This is a book that traces, conceptually, theoretically and empirically, the impact of EU institutions on identity - and more specifically, religious identity. Much of the strength of the book derives from a research design that combines rich analysis of individual case studies with the identification of broad patterns and common themes. . editors have contributed to our understanding of the ways in which EU integration has shaped the development of national - and mainly religious - identity in different member states." (Daphne Halikiopoulou, Religion and Society in Central and Eastern Europe, Vol. 9 (1), 2017)
