Mapping Frontiers, Crossing Borders was a two-year collaborative project (2004-2006) commissioned by the Higher Education Authority in the Republic of Ireland and funded through the European Union Programme for Peace and Reconciliation ('Peace II'). The project consisted of three parts:
* Borders and their consequences: a comparative perspective (including attention to Korea, Vietnam, Germany, Cyprus, Sri Lanka, Tyrol, Alsace-Lorraine, Schleswig)
* The Irish border as a social divide, focusing on the political and administrative background and interchanges and transactions in the social, economic and cultural fields;
* Pathways for promoting cross-border contact, co-operation and mutual understanding: mapping efforts to promote cross-border co-operation since the 1980s; under arrangements arising from the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement; indicative in-depth studies to probe different forms of cross-border co-operation
The project generated a series of Working Papers and Ancilliary Papers that are available below (listed under shortened headings) in pdf format using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
