Border cities offer unique examples of cross-border cooperation and the challenges, opportunities and benefits that exist in border regions. With contextually specific dynamics, these cities nonetheless are often spaces that have made exemplary progress in cross-border cooperation and developed methods for overcoming obstacles that other border regions can learn from.The seventh edition of the ‘Beyond Borders: Breakfast Debate’ will investigate the role of border cities in territorial development processes, as well as discussing a range of policy development proposals.
At our next Breakfast Debate, we will hear from citizens who will share their personal experiences of living in these cities, making apparent the similarities, and idiosyncratic differences, and thus grounding the conversation by allowing us to appreciate the experiences of living in such locations. The conversation will then continue to explore the more theoretical perspectives and experiences from Interreg programmes, as discussed by:
- Eduardo Medeiros, Instituto Universitário de Lisboa
- Nathalie Verschelde, DG REGIO
- Christophe Sohn, Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research
- Bernard Reitel, University of Artois
- Martin Klatt, University of Southern Denmark
They will share insights and expertise on topics such as cross-border spatial planning in border cities, European policies and border cities, and rural border cities.
