This article by S. Božić-Vrbančić reviews some of the discourse theory approaches to the identity issues and their implications for analysis of European identity. There is a great wealth of literature on European identity and the article concentrates on those works that cover topics on "European culture" (issues on "language", "multiculturalism", "heritage", "belonging", "boundaries", "identification"). In reviewing these approaches, the author reasserts the value of synthesis between Ernesto Laclau"s discourse theory and Lacan"s thought as elaborated by Slavoj Zizek in the analysis of processes of identification incontemporary Europe. The theme is discussed by Jasna Čapo Žmegač, Lidija Nikočević, Jadranka Grbić and Vedrana Spajić-Vrkaš.
