Chapter Summary

This chapter explores some puzzling aspects of pride in Slovak citizenship with the help of the data of all European Values Study (EVS) waves held in Slovakia. It starts with a theoretical framework for the study of patriotism as a convention and debate the conditions that might facilitate the habituation of patriotic conventions. The chapter briefly outlines the social-political, economic and historical transformations that might have positively and negatively influenced the development of pride in Slovak citizenship during the period under study. To test this idea and the hypotheses derived from habituation theory it explores the EVS data sets (19912008) and the data from the 2004 Collective Identity Survey. This data exploration remains rather simple, and naturally we consider our work to be a preliminary step towards a more robust analysis. The closing paragraphs sum up our provisional findings and the questions that remain open.

Keywords: European Values Study (EVS); patriotism; Slovak citizenship
