Abstract While the first EUCROSS working paper (Favell et al. 2011) laid down the theoretical groundwork of our project in a ‘State of the Art Report’ (SoA) and the second one (Hanquinet and Savage 2011) discussed issues around the operationalisation of three key concepts – European identity, cosmopolitanism and cross-border practices – this paper elaborates on the measurement instruments which have ultimately been chosen and, thus, form the core of the EUCROSS questionnaire. Hence, as the title suggests, the paper describes how we measure ‘transnational’ behaviours and identities. In particular, it outlines the questionnaire items developed to capture those phenomena, which the SoA referred to as ‘cross-border practices’, and their influence on individual identification with Europe or a cosmopolitan stance.
