Where Europe emerges: Border regions as laboratories for a decentralised and citizen-oriented Europe?

Border regions have benefited enormously from European integration. The internal market and the Schengen area have ultimately moved them from their national periphery to the heart of Europe. It is precisely here, in border regions, that various new formats of cooperation are developed and tested, which draw the contours of a different, decentralised and citizen-oriented Europe. What can we learn from the experience of border regions? What could be transferred to other regions? What role could and should regions play in Europe? What contribution can they make to the emergence of a post-national European democracy?

To discuss these questions, the Sønderjylland-Schleswig Region, REGIOPARL | Regional Parliaments Lab and the European Democracy Lab invite you to a discussion on the future of regions in Europe on 22.08 at 19.00 in the Aula of the Hans-Christiansen-Haus in Flensburg.
