BRIT XIV conference "The Border – A Source of Innovation" takes place at the Franco-Belgian border (Arras – Lille – Mons); November 4 - 7, 2014.

The call for papers has been postponed to April 15.

The list of sessions is available here: http://www.brit2014.org/index.php/sessions/


BRIT (Border Regions in Transition) is an international network of researchers and practitioners dealing with issues on borders.

 The objective of BRIT XIV conference is, with a transdisciplinary approach (geography, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, history), to contribute to a collective reflection on innovations related to border and cross-border dynamics.

The decision to set BRIT next to the Franco-Belgian border in 2014 falls within the symbol. A century after the declaration of the Great War, the aim is to trace the evolution of the border between France and Belgium, which started from “front” border to end with « sewing » border. If it once represented a split between two territories, the border has now come to represent an element of welding these two territories. The field day will offer a contact with these concrete realities.
