Summary/Abstract: Not only the collapse of Communism and the subsequent increase in ethnic and national conflict, but also the processes of European integration and globalization have revived the international debate about the relationship between national identity and political order. The present article is concerned with the discussion of the term 'national identity, which is currently underway in almost all the social sciences. It considers the possibilities and limits of supranational political integration in Europe in the light of U.S., Canadian, and Swiss experience with constituting political nation-states.
