The European citizen is neither a subject nor an object in the discourses about the project «Europe.» Instead, the question of how to construct Europe and who European citizens are has become a topic for EU-experts, among whom European citizens are not counted. This book cannot provide a platform for a discourse among European citizens about their view on the project «Europe.» It does, however, provide some insights for European citizens about who Europeans are «supposed» to be, concluded from the discourses of all those European «expertocrats.»
