The 'Cross-Border Review 2016' is the third edition of the yearbook published by CESCI European Institute of Cross-border Studies. The basic research object of the yearbook is the phenomenon and question of borders, cross-border cooperation within the frame of European crisis and its consequences. Case study essays feature prominently in this yearbook, providing insightful and critical discussion regarding the benefits and wider significance of CBC in different regional and local contexts. Our yearbook includes topics like Europeanization, significance of CBC within EU cohesion, domestication of EU policies in the interests of the nation-building; analysis of ENP as a bordering policy and call for an alternative conceptions of neighbourhood, where the conventional practices of inclusion/exclusion need to be deconstructed; significance of tourism as a possible 'milking' of the border for regional development of Przemyśl and the region; analysis of European cross-border areas from the perspective of statistical data and analysis; cross-border health care as a strategy of mitigating regional/local limitations through cooperation; border flows – trade, shopping, smuggling – between Iraq and Iran, their influences and impacts on the development of Baneh. Furthermore, the yearbook contains a research report on Euborderscapes, two commentaries about everyday bordering and the Brexit, and two book reviews on some of the latest releases from the thematic field of borders.

2015
Cross-Border Review. Yearbook of the European Institute (EN)

The 'Cross-Border Review 2015' is the second edition of the yearbook published by CESCI European Institute of Cross-border Studies in 2015. The basic research object of the yearbook this time again is the phenomenon of borders and the cross-border cooperation and interaction between neighbours. The first major part consists of three theoretical studies that offer a theoretical frame of the Review. These include the following analyses: the issue of sovereignty and its metamorphosis in the post-1989 world politics; the “forgotten border” between Poland and Kaliningrad Oblast as de/re-boundarization of the Russian-EU neighbourhood; and the analysis of cross-border cooperation at the EU’s external frontiers in more general terms. In the second part, the Review demonstrates four practical approaches where specific cases of cross-border interaction are investigated and scientifically reflected, like comparison of the EU funds for cross-border cooperation of schools at the Czech-Polish border; the spatial impact of cross-border cooperation projects on the Bulgarian economy between 2007 and 2013; cross-border cooperation and interactions across the Finnish-Russian border; and mental mapping, language skills and position-generator as indicators of cross-border impact. Furthermore, the Review contains two workshop reports, two proceeding reports and four book-reviews on some of the latest releases from the thematic field of borders. The 'Cross-Border Review 2015' is primarily recommended for the academic community, for students of geography and political sciences, and for those readers who are interested in questions of politics, regional policy, borders, fences, de-boundarization, mental mapping, border permeability and cross-border-cooperation and interaction.
The editor-in-chief was James W. Scott (Professor of Regional and Border Studies, University of Eastern Finland), and the editor was Márton Pete (researcher, European Institute of cross-border studies). The Review is published in English.
