ABSTRACT

Nationalism and the EU, A threat to further integration?

Thesis in Political Science (C-level) at Karlstad University by

Magnus Andersson, Fall 2006

Tutor: Susan Marton

This is a comparative study where I am searching for a correlation between nationalism and the attitudes toward the European Union and its development. I am Using Delanty and his theories about cosmopolitism and new nationalism to form an abstract theory and then I use McLaren and Kaldor to operationalize it. Then I use three different methods to examine nationalism and the attitudes towards the EU. I use Pearson’s r, Analytical schedules and categorical data.

My main research question is

• Can the result in the referendums be an expression for new nationalism in its material form?

Then I have two questions that will help me answer my main question.

• Is there any connection between nationalism and the economic variables?

• Is there any connection between nationalism and the social variables?

The material that I have used is mainly from Euro stats, who is a well known and a well recognized statistical database. I have also used SCB (Statistiska Central Byrån) which is the Swedish national statistical unit, and then I have also used Nation master who is an international statistical database who has been recognized internationally.

After analyzing the material that I have collected I found that there was little correlation between my dependent variable (% of population positive to the new constitution of the European Union) and the independent variables (unemployment rate, Trade, Education and transfer payments). The only variable that showed correlation was transfer payments which showed a very good correlation.
