This paper draws upon the narrative element in academic accounts of Europeanisation as a story of social change and integration, and takes a discursive approach to analyzing Europeanisation. It explores variants of Europeanisation as a form of social imagination of the unity and diversity of a European society, and examines four interrelated processes in the narrative construction of European society.

In this paper, the authors confront some commonly held assumptions and objections with regard to the feasibility of deliberation in a transnational and plurilingual setting. To illustrate their argument, they rely on a solid set of both quantitative and qualitative data from Europolis, a transnational deliberative experiment that took place one week ahead of the 2009 European Parliamentary elections.
