Title: MYTHS AND COUNTERMYTHS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
 
Author: Krisztina Arató
 
Description: The legitimacy problems of the European Union are rooted partly in the double nature of myths about it. Currently the leading myth of the European Union is about efficiency, policy and its contribution to the postwar peace and prosperity in Europe. However, recent developments show that opposing this is a countermyth being built by eurosceptic parties and political forces. It argues that the European Union is building a superstate forcing its will on member states, and it should be prevented from further growth in competences that would lead to an ever closer union with the full-fledged powers of a state. These conflicting myths deepen the legitimacy problems of the EU.
