Border studies have intensively analysed the dynamics of multi-level governance. Manifold facets of cross-border cooperation have been addressed in the vertical and the horizontal dimension. However, the domestic dimension has hardly been addressed so far.We have now concluded a study on behalf of the German Ministry of the Interior, exploring the situation in a series in European countries.
The full report of this study is published in German language:

An in-depth reflection in English language is under preparation. In order to make some key results accessible for the English audience already now, this paper briefly summarises the key results:
