The European Union and social democratic identity

, the EU becomes a polity – and a player – that counts for more in the new complex environment. It is also a mechanism that allows social democracy, which has become proEuropean, to connect better with the salaried and educated middle strata of the population. Social democracy’s commitment to European integration reinforces its link with these strata, strongly ‘attached’ to cultural liberalism and post-materialist values, as well as with the segment of the population frequently considered to be the ‘integration winners’, who are attached to the dynamic of cosmopolitan

political, social contestation (Craig and Porter, 2005). This ideologically biased form of conflict programming, which focuses largely on bringing stability (or negative peace) as opposed to substantial transformation (positive peace) to post-conflict areas, is fundamentally a tool for creating liberal regimes in previously ‘illiberal’ parts of the world. At least four specific impacts of this approach on transformation programming have been exposed. First, the standard critique of the liberal peace in this regard is that local needs become secondary to global, or foreign

Most of the articles that address the role of the Germans during the war, and its legacy on post-war Germany, contain a clearly revisionist view. Either they call for the rehabilitation of German soldiers and their actions or they stress the war crimes of the Allies during and after the war (so-called Aufrechnung). The party never goes so far as to condone (major aspects of) Nazi-Germany, however. The chap7 28/5/02 13.33 176 Page 176

Post-colonial and other area studies scholars have treated the historical actors presented here in skilful and sophisticated ways but struggle perhaps too diligently to excise them

National rights are analogous to human rights and are also universal. This form of nationalism sits easily with the more internationalist, pacifist and idealist elements within liberalism. A world of sovereign nations would respect each other’s national rights and co-operate readily within

Finally, analysis of party system evolution must also incorporate a third series of explanations based on social change: these vary from neo-Marxist arguments relating to the emergence of the social class as the salient electoral cleavage, giving a sociological underpinning to left–right bipolarisation, to sociological analysis pinpointing the emergence of the ‘new middle classes’ as the central groups in post-war French society, favouring the emergence of broad

Beginning with an overview of disease management strategies in the 1940s, it traces how the creation of the NHS confirmed diabetes as a hospital condition, one closely connected

The continuing existence of the Jewish question post-emancipation appeared in the antisemitic imagination as
