Event – RADICAL POLITICAL MOVEMENTS IN EUROPEAN BORDER AREAS

Client/Organisers: Erasmus+ Programme – Jean Monnet “Policy debate with academic world”
Period: 13-14 February 2018
Description: Other than being the first to experience these social tensions, do border areas represent also a laboratory for their further elaboration and the possible creation of counter-narratives? Are citizens and politicians alike in border areas more prone to adhere to and exploit radical discourses? Are there specific border-area’s / cross-border / borders’ social and cultural variables which can help understand the radicalisation phenomenon/a?
