I mean that the peoples living in Europe don’t have the common feeling to be part of a same group. The failure/limits of the European Parliament show it. The European Union is based, from the ECSC in 1951, on a small group of experts avoiding the peoples of Europe. A sociology of the European institutions shows the social specificity of the actors involved in the EU institutions (majority of PhDs in Economics, Law and Social Science). The project is not sustained by a big politic and democratic support, as there is no European people, no European identity. It is why the referendums about the exit of Europe are so close to succeed. Europe needs to democratize.
