Abstract

„New institutional spaces’ across borders“ in Europe have a lot to do with the decline of protectionism, up streaming neoliberalism, the end of the Cold War and political concessions on regional integration, while security politics were more important in border areas in previous times. A cross-border region is a fruitful research subject for analysing these influences. Especially in Europe these regions emerged after the end of the Second World War, some of them developed bottom-up on functional premises while others were constructed from above. How institutionbuilding in peripheral crossborder areas occurs is the leading question in this paper. The periphery is a central factor in the question and due to this the interdependences might be rather weak on a regional level. These premises are tested with two different theoretical models and the case of the Barents Region.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
