THE EUROPEAN IDENTITY AND CITIZENSHIP OF THE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN GÖDÖLLŐ

The process of globalization already affects all the European countries. Its positive and negative consequences are challenging governments and peoples, too. One of the possible answer for the members of society is the strengthening their status as citizen. This paper will examine what are the differences in national identity, culture, attitudes among different countries in Europe and will analyze how it is possible to create the "public" in different countries. That is to develop civil initiatives and movements and to exert a great effort so that the citizens “opinion” has a real influence on the social life. There is an important role of the education, because its task is to raise a successful young generation which will gain good knowledge and its members will express themselves as morally matured citizens. That requires reaching a certain level of democracy which shows itself by respecting the rights of the minorities (ethnical, political and social), respecting the right to no deprivation of civil rights for freedom of meeting, association and expressing one's opinion by means of petition. Our examination is done upon four dimension of the citizenship (political/legal, social, cultural and economic) and there were interviewed students of economic faculties.
