On the other hand, it would

. Its institutional embodiment, the European Union (EU) 2 developed as a proxy to the historic reunification of the European continent by extending peace, reconciliation, and prosperity to Eastern Europe. As the EU evolved, it acquired a self-proclaimed vocation to serve peaceful development and formulated special policies to address such issues (Voorhoeve 2007 : 163).

To my knowledge, only Eric van Rythoven ( 2015; 2018 ) has taken the step to theorise seriously the role of emotions in securitisation studies by rejecting the dystopian emphasis on fear's mobilising potential and instead shedding light on the

The Balkan experience

’ institutional embodiment of the transatlantic relationship, yet this formulation does no more than reflect objective realities. The EU has a distinct transatlantic relationship of its own, via a programme of institutionalised summit meetings between the US President and senior administration officials, on the one hand, and the Commission President and current EU Presidency state on the other. Some might also argue that the

While place is often bounded and specific to a location, its distinctiveness relates to the way people interact within emplaced spaces to create and experience a sense of belonging.

This is reflective of what Richard Hughes calls a ‘cult of innocence’ in American political life (Hughes 2003: 154). In its foundational myths America emerges as innocent child among nations, untainted by the finite dimensions of human history – it is the embodiment of a new golden age of

One of the first arguments along these lines appeared in The Economist in February 1955. Its editorial comments offered an early definition of what actually constituted the community: It is a group of countries that share certain
