Executive Summary

Identities seem to matter in attitudes toward European integration according to opinion surveys, but surveys, which represent a quasi-hegemonic data in the field of European studies, are ill-equipped to record them. Identities are supposed to be in-depth and long lasting attitudes and surveys don't differentiate between superficial and flexible answers, partially given by chance and conformity to what is believed to be "The right answer"; and in-depth and meaningful responses, that correspond to profound preferences and refer to issues that matter to the interviewees.
