Research seminar on bilateral treaties: “Resilience and cross-border asymmetry”

On April 11th, 2024, in Strasbourg, a seminar on cross-border governance was organized by the University of Strasbourg and the Jean Monnet Center of Excellence. A round-table discussion on the three bilateral treaties (Aachen, Quirinal, Barcelona), attended by the ambassadors in charge of borders in France, Italy and Spain and the German Consul General in Strasbourg, was co-hosted by the Euro-institut and the MOT.

Particular attention was brought to the fact that “The systemic nature of most of these issues, which are highly comparable from one border to another, confirms the value of having an interministerial border cooperation committee within the French administration. By bringing together all the ministries concerned, such a committee would enable a comprehensive treatment of obstacles or imbalances at borders that reduce the benefits that France can expect from the internal market.”
