Resumé

The aim of this paper is to trace and scrutinize some of the underlying
forces that might contribute to explaining the current skepticism about a
policy of debordering Europe. The author therefore discusses why prefiguring
a borderless Europe based on European identity has stumbled into
misconceived conceptions of the nation, and then presents an explanation
of the transformative dynamics that undermine the vision of a borderless
Europe. The paper concludes that a borderless Europe will remain a vision
as long as the idea of a European identity cannot establish a reliable alternative
to its national counterpart, but multiple cosmopolitan forces still
keep pushing towards debordering Europe.
