Association of Borderland Studies Europe conference 2016

Differences and discontinuities in a “Europe without borders”

4-7 October 2016

University of Luxembourg in cooperation with UniGR-Center for Border Studies (UniGR-CBS)


Every two years the European conference of the Association for Borderland Studies (ABS) is organized and offers a platform to scientists in the field of Border Studies. The University of Luxembourg will host the ABS Europe-conference in 2016. Borders play a particular role in Luxembourg. The Luxembourgish village Schengen gained international celebrity due to the signed treaties for open borders. In 2015 this agreement celebrates its 30th anniversary.
