Formatted abstract
In many debt-ridden European countries, the current financial crisis has forced national parliaments to pass harsh fiscal measures and welfare cuts to comply with the lending requirements laid out by the infamous troika – the European Union, International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank. No less importantly, this crisis is also asking, yet again, some serious questions about the democratic accountability of the EU...

This paper intends to consider the cultural and historical repercussions of the EU crisis, and will pose the question whether concealing national differences under the cloak of a vaguely defined common cultural heritage has in fact been detrimental to development of a shared political culture and a European demos.
