Chapter Summary

The issue of 'integration' has become an increasingly contested and important topic in European politics in recent years. This chapter examines the possibilities and limits of the European Union (EU) Treaty framework regarding both the adoption of integration measures per se and the content and scope of integration policy in the light of the Treaty framework on a number of the related policies- with the emphasis being upon issues of identity and diversity in the EU. Access to education and respect for cultural and religious diversity are central to the EU integration policy. Notwithstanding the reluctance of Member States to recognise a specific Community competence on integration measures in the current Treaties, integration considerations and provisions do appear in secondary Community law determining rights for third country nationals. In the development of EU law and policy in the field, integration is seen as having a number of diverse roles.

Keywords: cultural diversity; European politics; European union (EU) law; integration policy; religious diversity; secondary community law
