During the ever-closer cooperation and integration within Europe in the last three decades, it seems that criticism and caution towards it has mainly come from Britain and the Nordic countries. The British, the Nordics and several other Western European countries originally stood outside the European Communities. Even after some of these countries joined the European Community (EC) and later the European Union (EU), the Danes, Swedes and the British especially seem to have preferred cooperation to integration and have made much of the importance of national independence and sovereignty.
In this thesis I focus on the reasons for the reluctance towards the European integration process in the Nordic countries and Britain and will, both in an analysis of the discourse in the primary and secondary sources and empirical discussion, try to identify common characteristics that might account for the “scepticism” towards European federalist ideals in these countries.
