What kind of borders citizens of cross-border regions want for the future Europe? At the European level, current discussions evolve around different border regimes, EU border policies, cross-border cooperation as the driver of European integration and social as well as economic considerations of open or closed borders. At the local level, there are questions about the role of borders in citizens’ daily life, cultural borders and potentials but also challenges of cross-border cooperation.
To find an answers to the questions mentioned above, the conclusive event of the TEIN4Citizens project which is also part of the citizens' dialogue the EGTC Strasbourg-Ortenau at the Franco-German border, will discuss four different topics relevant for the daily life of citizens living in cross-border areas in different online workshops.
