Objectives of the course:

The aim of the course is to deepen the knowledge of the students, future masters of international relations, on a sculpturing of borders within the Black Baltic Sea region, the main  issues of changing borders and boundaries in the region, and logics of inclusion and exclusion that shape its political contours.

The course focuses on the changing the borders in the BBSR which are highly affected by geopolitical events and conflicts. This course contributes to the understanding of multiple borders with particular emphasis on the question how de- and re-bordering affect the regionalisation process in practice and how it influences the cooperation within the BBSR.

The aim of the course (based on an analysis of a corpus of documents) is to show that the region-building process in the BBSR itself creates new borders, which define the level of the member state’s political participation in the region. The governance of macro-regions would benefit from the development of such analytical frameworks that take into account the impact of the multitude of borders on the practical level.the main trends and peculiarities of international cooperation between the countries of the region among themselves and with third countries.
