We participated the “National Minorities in Regional Development” workshop in Flensburg at the invitation of ECMI (European Centre for Minority Issues). We would like to thank them for the professional workshop that gave an opportunity for a colourful international exchange of experience.


In the framework of the project funded by the Visegrád Fund, our proposal for the V4 legal accessibility mechanism was published. The study is available here.


On 31 January, CESCI participated as an expert at the professional meeting organised by the DG Regio and the AEBR in Brussels targeting the B-Solutions programme dealing with cross-border legal obstacles. The project owners of the 10 projects selected in the first round of the programme presented the obstacles identified by themselves, as well as their proposals on how to abolish the concerned obstacles. Mr Dirk Peters (DG Regio) introduced the draft ECBM (European Cross-Border Mechanism) Regulation, in the perspective of which the experts had to assess the presented projects.


It is our pleasure to inform you that our newest academic output, 'Cross-Border Review 2018', is already available. The volume collects articles with very different perspectives on cross-border cooperation and it encompasses huge territorial space from Europe to China. To download click here.
