Frontiers and identities

The exact priorities, pathways and specific work-plan of the TWG responsible for Theme 5 will be defined by the Group itself and will follow the general scheme outlined. Much work has already gone into this theme, in planning it and planning the group responsible: the choice has been to select partners who have particular competences in far-flung areas of Europe in order to ensure a comparative methodology, observing both different definitions of frontiers and also different ways of studying them. Here there is already useful input into a theme which in today’s Europe is immediately perceived as of central importance. In fact, the frontier is the area that allows distinction from ‘the other’– most obviously it is identified as the geographical space that divides from the other, but it is also the space that connects; and there are many other sorts of frontiers that sometimes coincide with political frontiers but often do not: of language, religion, social organisation, city-countryside and many more. Understanding the historical processes of identifying and consolidating frontiers is of evident critical value when ‘the other’ becomes our neighbour and our co-citizen.
