The Border Multiple: The Practicing of Borders between Public Policy and Everyday Life in a Re-scaling Europe - Border Regions Series (Hardback)Dorte Jagetic Andersen (editor), Marie Sandberg (editor), Martin Klatt (editor)
Hardback 280 Pages
Addressing and conceptualizing the changing character of borders in contemporary Europe, this book examines developments occurring in the light of European integration processes and an on-going tightening of Europe's external borders. Moreover, the book suggests new ways of investigating the nature of European borders by looking at border practices in the light of the mobility turn, and thus as dynamic, multiple, diverse and best expressed in everyday experiences of people living at and with borders, rather than focusing on static territorial divisions between states and regions at geopolitical level. It provides border scholars and researchers as well as policymakers with new empirical and theoretical evidence on the de- and re-bordering processes going on in diverse border regions in Europe, both within and outside of the EU.

'Moving from the practices of Ukrainian smugglers to policy making in Brussels this book gives a refreshingly new and impressive analysis of the changing roles of borders in Europe.' Orvar LAfgren, Lund University, Sweden 'Borders have become a major object of research in social and cultural sciences since the 1990s. Yet, in spite of the popularity of the border theme, the boundary lines between various academic fields have often remained high and prevented a dialogue between scholars. This edited collection takes a useful step towards interdisciplinarity. It brings together contributions from several academic fields and provides a balanced package of theoretical discussion and empirical studies related to the rescaling of European spaces, to the meanings of borders in everyday practices and to current mobilities. This book is a useful addition to contemporary border literature.' Anssi Paasi, University of Oulu, Finland 'An excellent and insightful collection of essays on the fascinating and steadily growing field of border studies. With a clear and timely focus on the multiple b/ordering practices in and of the EU - highly recommended.' Henk van Houtum, University of Bergamo, Italy and Nijmegen Centre for Border Research, Radboud University, The Netherlands
