Serbian Identity and the Concept of Europeanness
Serbia is considered as "an unfinished state" with a rather "undefined nation and as such approaching the European Union. This raises the question to what extent these circumstances will influence the success of Serbias EU-integration process, since nation identity and statehood are in this article seen as constitutional parts of the concept of Europeanness. Thus this paper focuses on Europeanness and the identity behind it. It further gives an overview of the Serbian identity, first by presenting its dichotomy and then by highlighting the main factors, which have primarily shaped the identity of Serbia. Finally this paper shows why a clearly defined national identity would facilitate Serbias access to the EU.
