EUBORDERREGIONS Working Papers Series nr. 1 “Laboratories of European integration: city-twinning in Northern Europe” is ready


The present work by Pertti Joenniemi and Alexander Sergunin approaches the question of cohesion and cross-border co-operation in Europe through the lens of local actors – of communities. The concept of twin-cities as drivers of local economic and political integration is an intriguing one but has only sporadically been investigated in comparative terms.

This EUBORDERREGIONS working paper offers a detailed discussion of local attempts to “reconstruct” local borders, including in areas located at the external borders of Schengen-Europe. Twin cities as co-operation partners also reflect wider geopolitical contexts that impact on local and regional development in border areas.
