"A multidimensional measurement of the integration between European border regions"October 2019
Cross-border integration in Europe is a complex and multifaceted process that has contrasting impacts on border regions. In this article, the authors provide, with the aid of statistical indicators, an analysis of cross-border integration along the EU’s internal borders, highlighting the similarities and discrepancies that can be observed between different territories.
They propose a methodology to measure the dimensions of integration based on combining the “functional”, “ideational” (collective representations) and “institutional” dimensions.
