Summary: This paper explores the proposition that public discourse about the European

Union in Croatia is not European, but national. The ‘nationalness’ of this discourse

about Europe leads to divergent constructions of Croatian and European identity, and

this, in turn, makes inclusion in the EU’s distributive mechanisms more difficult. The first

part of the paper highlights the two discourses that exist in Europe – European and

national. The second part describes how Croatian and European public discourse about

the European Union diverge, and what the consequences of this divergence are. In the

third part, reasons contributing to this divergence are offered, and the dangers of such a

development for Croatia’s European future are indicated.
