Abstract [en]

Today’s European Union was founded in a 1950s marked by its member

states’ involvement in numerous colonial conflicts and with the colonial question

firmly entrenched on the European and international agenda. This notwithstanding,

there is hardly any scholarly investigations to date that have examined colonialism’s

bearing on the historical project and process of European integration. In tackling

this puzzle, the present article proceeds in two steps. First, it corroborates the claim

that European integration not only is related to the history of colonialism but to no

little extent determined by it. Second, it introduces a set of factors that explain why

the relation between the EU and colonialism has been systematically neglected. Here

the article seeks to identify the operations of a colonial epistemology that has

facilitated a misrecognition of what postwar European integration was about. As the

article argues, this epistemology has enabled colonialism’s historical relation to the

European integration project to remain undetected and has thus also reproduced

within the present EU precisely those colonial or neo-colonial preconceptions that

the European partner states, in official discourse and policy, falsely claim that they

have abandoned.
