Abstract

This research article investigates the degree to which the 'politics of memory' influences the behaviour of Polish MEPs. It explores the ways in which Polish MEPs, through 'educating' the European Parliament about important Polish/European moments in history, reaffirm their own national identity while simultaneously promoting the need for European identity to be constructed in relation to Poland and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
