Is the european devoted to selling integration in a ‘wider’ ecu house, or is a “fortress Europe” rising the place the strengthening of inner harmony is coupled with the militarisation of its exterior borders? The ebook goals to problematize this question through exhibiting how the EU’s exterior guidelines are according to a mix of openness and closure, inclusion and exclusion, cooperation and securitisation. the ecu Neighbourhood coverage is a debatable process the place regionalization and bordering, homogenisations and differentiations, centrifugal and centripetal forces continue side-by-side, in an specific try and build a selective, cellular and fragmented border.

A particular concentration is dedicated to the range of geo-strategies the european is pursuing in its neighbouring international locations and areas, macro-regional techniques and cross-border cooperation projects as new scales of cooperation, and the position of different international players.

Henk van Houtum (2005) use the term ‘b/ordering’ to refer to the interplay between the ordering (of chaos) and border-making. Physical borders are not there only by tradition, wars, agreements and high politics but also made and maintained by other cultural, economic political and social activities. Everyday ‘bordering and ordering’ practices connive to create and recreate new social-cultural boundaries and divisions which are also spatial in nature. Everyday lived experiences include intersections, differentiations and similarities.

Popescu argues that Euroregions often tend to be co-opted by specific interests seeking either to benefit from direct EU support. As a result, Popescu states that Euroregions, especially those emerging in Central and Eastern Europe, are top-down creations, inhibiting processes of region-building through local initiative. 6 EU Border Politics and the Case of the External Borders If the practice of cross-border co-operation has been a long-standing element of the EU’s border politics as a means of consolidating political community, it has been employed vis–à-vis neighbouring States in order to enhance the EU’s external role and to differentiate the EU from the rest of the world (Scott 2011).
