In the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, borders have become relevant (again) in political action and in people's everyday lives within a very short time. This was especially true for the inhabitants of border regions, whose cross-border life worlds were suddenly irritated by closed borders and police controls. However, the COVID-19 pandemic also led to an increased evidence of social, cultural, eco-nomic, health and mobility boundaries beyond national borders. The authors of this new issue of “UniGR-CBS Borders in Perspective” shed light on these dynamics from the perspective of territorial borders, social boundaries and (dis)continuities in border regions through a variety of thematic and spatial approaches. Their critical observations and scientific comments were made during the lockdown in April and May 2020 and provide insights into the events during the global pandemic. [less ▲]

Studies on the connection between migration and urbanity are usually concerned with conditions and developments in cities. The presence of ‘urbanity’ in rural space is the topic of the present contribution. It will be discussed using the example of residential migration in the Greater Region SaarLorLux. The massive influx of residential migrants from Luxembourg into the border regions of the neighbouring countries is a relatively recent phenomenon, the main cause of which lies in the developments in the real-estate market in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. This phenomenon is of special interest for the topic of migration in rural areas in two regards: because of the important demographic changes produced by the residential migrants in individual border villages and because of the complex composition of the group of residential migrants, which is extremely differentiated regarding the dimension rural – urban. Central to the article is the question, whether urban attitudes and practices become visible in German border villages, and, if so, how the migratory movement from Luxembourg influences this ‘rural urbanity’. Furthermore, taking the everyday practices of the residential migrants as starting point, it asks in how far the dichotomy urbanity - rurality presents a conceptual approach for the examination of individual and structural integration processes.

The idea of a “Europe without borders” has been contested for the last decade and is increasingly overshadowed by rebordering phenomena. This development has sparked debates within border studies on how borders should be thought of and investigated. The introductory article deals with this and reconstructs the formation and differentiation of the bordering approach. Furthermore, the concept of border experiences is determined as an investigative perspective that is interested in everyday cultural arenas of bordering processes. It puts the agency of ‘border(lands) residents’ in the center and provides insights into everyday cultural border (re)productions.With this in mind, we will present the book articles in the final section.

Luxembourg is characterized by phenomena of mobility that includecross-border commuters and residential migrants. While both groups havebeen mainly examined from a socioeconomic perspective, this paperadopts a sociocultural approach. We will focus on the question of the ex-tent to which cross-border mobility in everyday life promotes cross-borderlifeworlds. This will involve examining people’s social contacts at theirplace of work and/or place of residence as well as the spatial organizationof practices of the everyday life of both groups. The paper gives insights in-to everyday lives at the EU’s internal borders, whose organization into na-tion states is subordinate and at the same time constitutive. [less ▲]

In order to achieve our objective, we will first provide an overview of the development of cooperation research, its characterizing orientations and establish a link to the topic of this contribution (chapter 2). The following presentation of practice theories introduces praxeo-logical thinking and provides a condensed outline of the state of the art of this cultural soci-ological theory (chapter 3). Building on this, we will develop our idea of a cross-border practice formation that breaks with the premises of traditional cooperation research, and we provide an alternative perspectivation by outlining four challenges of CBC (chapter 4). In consideration of some research-practical particularities which are linked to the suggested analytical perspective, we eventually offer (chapter 5) an outlook on the development of an alternative research approach which is compatible within a multidisciplinary context.

This paper examines how practice-theoretical considerations can be linked with those of a spatial-theoretical nature and translated into a heuristic of spatial analysis from a cultural studies perspec-tive. This question focus results from the understanding that space should be regarded as an emer-gent aspect of the social and that it is still largely insufficiently defined in Border Studies. Drawing on a number of different spatial concepts, the paper first presents an action-theoretical notion of space and reformulates it in a practice-theoretical framework. It constitutes the point of departure for the development of the spaces of the border model with its analytical categories of social practices, practical knowledge as well as physical-material and social-structural aspects. The diversity of con-nections between these analytical categories have proven to be heuristically particularly useful. [less ▲]

Petits pays ayant d’importants besoins de main-d’œuvre, le Luxembourg et la Suisse attirent tous deux un grand nombre de travailleurs frontaliers. C’est dans une perspective comparative que les 19 auteurs impliqués dans ce Cahier Thématique analysent la situation des travailleurs frontaliers dans les principaux pôles d’emploi transfrontaliers (Luxembourg, Bâle, Genève), mais également au Tessin. En tenant compte des éléments contextuels et méthodologiques, géographes, économistes, sociologues et politologues se focalisent sur les questions d’emploi, le quotidien transfrontalier et les perceptions des frontaliers par la société. Cette approche collective et pluridisciplinaire est résumée par les éditeurs en identifiant des enjeux communs pour le Luxembourg et la Suisse. [less ▲]

Cross-border workers form a little-known but numerous population in Switzerland. Beyond clichés, this contribution brings together the main characteristics of this population based on official statistics and the latest research. The introduction of the Freedom of Movement Agreement did not change the growth trend of the population that remains to live and work in proximity of the border, mostly in France and near-Switzerland agglomerations. Conversely, the occupational areas and levels have diversified. Generally, cross-border workers have no negative influence on the labour market, except on salary level in some economic sectors in Ticino. The initiation of the “priority to Swiss residents” will not change the situation, which relates above all to the economic evolution. [less ▲]

Die Border Studies sind ein aufstrebendes Arbeitsfeld und erfassen zunehmend mehr Disziplinen. Dabei hat sich eine Untersuchungsperspektive durchgesetzt, die sich an den Akten der Hervorbringung von Grenzen und Grenzräumen orientiert und als practice shift bezeichnet werden kann. Sie ist allerdings in die Kritik geraten und erfährt in jüngster Zeit eine dynamische Weiterentwicklung. Sie gründet auf dem Anliegen border(ing) practices weitgreifender zu erfassen und ihrer Vielschichtigkeit gerecht zu werden. Der Vortrag greift diese Entwicklung auf, beleuchtet zentrale Prämissen und Ansätze und skizziert die Umrisse eines sich vollziehenden complexity shift in den Border Studies. Vor diesem Hintergrund wird abschließend die Rolle der disziplinenübergreifenden Zusammenarbeit in der zukünftigen Grenz(raum)forschung thematisiert. [less ▲]
