De-Bordering, Re-Bordering and Symbols on the European Boundries



The acceleration of European integration has resulted in practices of commemorating, marking, and visualizing borders; of stressing national and regional differences and of symbolically delimiting territories. This has been visible on both state and regional levels. The aim of this book is to analyze the processes of de-bordering and re-bordering in Europe with a special focus on symbols and other manifestations of togetherness and separateness of territorial units analyzed from their edges. The volume consists of nine contributions. Thomas Lunden investigates religious symbols that serve often as landscape markers. Jouni Hakli tests de-bordering and re-bordering on the example of the symbolic meanings of the Pa Gransen - Rajalla project in the border towns of Haparanda and Tornio. Jaros l aw Ja 'nczak researches different forms of cross-border government in Central European border twin towns. Heino Nyyssonen investigates national policy in Hungary. Beata Przybylska-Maszner describes Lampedusa island as a symbol of the 2011 border crisis in the European Union. Dorte Andersen, Anna Gawlewicz and Carsten Yndigegn research two cases of external EU borders: Slovenian-Croatian and Polish-Ukrainian. Felix Munch analyses focal points of collective memories that are sites of memory. Adam Szyma 'nski raises the question of Europe's boundaries in the process of European integration. Finally Krzysztof Senger applies an economic development perspective to cross-border cooperation and looks for methods to evaluate its outcomes.
