Weak Signal's description 
Interest in construction and nature of European identities – suggesting growing concern about these issues. Evidence of rapid growth in diversity of identity across MS, with little if any sign of expected convergence (er.g. between West and East, North and South). Assumptions that European identity will support social cohesion and political identity are challenged and realisation of need for new frameworks to support dissensus.
