This chapter addresses the issue of the becoming-minoritarian of Europe and examines how to reconfigure dominant national identities. It explains that implicit within the European unification project is the vision for a post-nationalist sociopolitical space and that this space, similar to a space of becoming-minoritarian, can produce a more ecophilosophical sense of multiple belonging. The chapter highlights the negative impact of the influx of migrants and the blending of various cultures in contemporary Europe on ethnic and nationalist categories of identification.

Keywords:   becoming-minoritarian, Europe, national identities, European unification, sociopolitical space, multiple belonging, migrants, cultures
