What is a European Identity?
Europe as a concept plays an important role in the times of rising migration. More and more countries join the European Union and enable their citizens to travel and work freely in member states. Faced with the current state of affairs, the common identity shared by people seems more important than ever before. However, is the concept of European identity, which is based on the notion of common memory of these countries, really internalized by people or is it just a concept used by the EU politicians? This paper presents the attitudes present in the German, British and Polish press towards Greece during the time before and after the Greek bailout referendum, which was the climax of the Eurozone crisis. By the means of such a content analysis, the author was able to grasp the aspects forming the European identity and therefore to observe and comment on its picture in three big EU member states: Germany, Great Britain and Poland.
