Project description:

See for all info: http://www.euborderscapes.eu

EUBORDERSCAPES reflects very different ways in which political and social borders condition our understandings of Europe. The research issues centre on the tension between 1) the defining of the borders of Europe and Europeanisation in political and socio-cultural terms, 2) the European inner and external border nexus between liberty and security 3) the development of cross-border landscapes and cross-border integration in cases that range from (post)conflicts to harmonious co-existence. The results of the gained insights are published in books, blogs, articles and opinion articles in media.
