How does immigration impact national and supranational identity? Current literature does not fully address the relationship between national and supranational identities. Globalization literature indicates that immigration may increase national identification, while immigration literature suggests the opposite. This research further investigates this relationship. Using a logit regression model, I analyze EU countries using the Eurobarometer for citizen’s identification alongside immigration levels from the World Bank. My analysis found that as immigration increases, there is an increase in national identification. This holds important real world implications considering the political climate of European countries and the rise of alt-right parties.
