Abstract

The European Union’s motto ‘united in diversity’ sounds increasingly out of touch with the current cultural and political climate. Yet exploring the possibilities of plural and open identities, as the European ideal does, has a renewed relevance precisely in the current situation. A cosmopolitan Europe is not just a utopia but a practical ground for EU institutions in search of legitimacy. It opens up opportunities for dialogue and exchange in a world increasingly nostalgic for strong and exclusive collective identities.
