Switching from a National Identity to a European one.

Christine Roland-Levy


This study aims at showing how, from individual attitudes, a new representation is gradually built and progressively it is shared by many, thus becoming a common social representation. It seeks to do so by analyzing attitudes and social representations of a new social object, first in January and then in February 2002 when the euro be­came the common currency in France as well as in 11 other coun­tries also belonging to the euro-zone; at this time, the French former national currency could still be used in parallel to the euro; and sec­ond, one year later, once the euro was the single currency that should be used in all the various financial transactions occurring in France.
