Journals and European Integration 1939–1979
Introduction: Luciano Tosi
It is now widely acquired the awareness that the process of European unification is not a matter concerning exclusively (or mainly) the governments of the Member States and their foreign policy and diplomacy. This awareness has become even stronger in the post-bipolar world and in the gradual emergence of Europe as an autonomous subject of international relations. In the analysis of the process of European integration, of its crisis and of its raises, of its ideals and of its concrete achievements, it is not possible to ignore the role of civil society in its multiform variety of expression, from economics to politics, from social aspects to the cultural and religious ones.
The relationship between civil society and European integration process has been already analyzed in a previous conference organized by the Associazione universitaria di studi europei (AUSE-ECSA Italy), whose proceedings were published with the title Consensus and European Integration: An Historical Perspective by Peter Lang in this same collection.
The present work is an ideal extension of that first initiative, and contains the proceedings of the conference Communicating Europe. Journals and European Integration 1939-1979 organized by AUSE (with the support of the Action Jean Monnet, Lifelong Learning Programme) at the University of Perugia and Assisi from 2 to 4 May 2013.
The analytical perspective adopted in this conference reflects the desire to analyze one of the instruments through which the process of “socialization” of public opinion to the issues “European” has been developed.
