Empirical approaches to studying the Oresund cross-border region

In this seminar, Rhiannon Pugh will delve into the methodology behind the Covidfencing project, as presented below. Pugh invites fellow researchers and the interested public to engage in a thoughtful discussion about the methodological aspects of researching borders and to share different approaches to conducting research across borders.

The project intends to illuminate the necessity to regulate CBRs in EU law and to analyse critically whether this would be a suitable means for ensuring their effective functioning and resilience in future crises. In a unique multi-disciplinary study combining law and regional economic geography perspectives, the project, first, questions the particular role of CBRs in EU integration and whether their status in the EU’s legal framework corresponds to their economic and societal relevance. Second, the study seeks to elucidate the effects of the predominantly national crisis measures during the COVID-19 pandemic on CBRs, and assess whether regional, national and EU-level coordination efforts have been adequate to ensure their proper functioning. Third, the study endeavours to clarify whether the role of CBRs warrants an enhanced status under EU law.material presence, the hierarchies of currencies, countries, and people that constitute the logic of racial capitalism. 


Rhiannon Pugh (Lund University) gives a presentation, followed by a discussion with William Kutz and the Öresund Comparative Borderland Research Group, and questions from participants. The webinar is free of charge, but you have to register to attend:
