The paper inquires how the idea of Europe has evolved and has been perceived in Ukraine since the country’s independence. Mixed methods approach combining both qualitative and quantitative methods are employed in this paper in order to draw on the theoretical underpinnings of the Europeanisation process and better explore Europeanisation narratives in Ukraine. Based on survey data, the analysis depicts how the idea of Europe has acquired legitimacy in the eyes of Ukrainians.
