EU-Space and the Euroclass

Modernity, Nationality and Lifestyle among Eurocrats in Brussels

How are prestige and power anchored in EU-Brussels? Which performances are valued and which are not? Pawel Lewicki's ethnographic analysis gives an insight into how different understandings of modernity and class structures reproduce national performances and stereotypes among EU civil servants. Divisions permeate both political and private life and are not only visible on the map of the city, but also in lifestyles of people living and working in EU-Brussels.

In such a cultural setting the strategies applied by newcomers to the EU are shown by Pawel Lewicki in an impressive way. He shows how their presence reveals deeper postcolonial and (post-)imperial dynamics at the heart of the Union.

»This book should be read by anyone – scholars, students, EU civil servants, and Europeans – who is keen to learn more about the EUs internal dynamics around power and prestige that permeate both the political and the personal life of persons working in the complex bureaucratic entity called the EU.«
