Borders are sites for investigating the of European governance, sovereignty, territory and identit(ies). We focus on (b)ordering processes occurring within Europe's internal cross-border regions.
Rather than withering away under the impact of globalisation, borders have become privileged sites for investigating the transformation of European governance, sovereignty, territory and identit(ies). We focus on b/ordering processes occurring within Europe's internal cross-border regions, taking into account the context of shifts in state sovereignty, territoriality, and cultural identity in Europe's borderlands. Courses will also train attention on the external bordering dimension of the European Union, while also addressing the EU's search for a broader role in the world. Themes raised are e.g.: cross-border governance, transnational and multi-level governance, European citizenship and 'cosmopolitical' identit(ies), critical border geopolitics, and the 'ethical' dimension to European borders.

Students will be able to apply the scientific insights and practical skills to topics as Europeanisation, internationalisation, borders, identities, cross-border governance and international cooperation and politics.

The Master's in Europe: Borders Identity and Governance is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Human Geography.
