Following the end of coalmining in Belgium (1992) and France (2004), the year 2018 marks the end of hard coal mining in Germany as well. This contribution looks at the legacy of coalmining of Germany’s French-speaking neighbours and presents the most important remaining coal mining heritage sites as well as some extraordinary converted sites in France and the Belgian province Wallonia.

High unemployment rates on one side of a border and training opportunities on the other, the lack of training programmes for specialised jobs on the one side of the border and well defined vocational programmes on the other side: cross-border vocational education and training (VET) is an increasingly used tool to accommodate the differing needs inside the European Union in recent years. This paper will present, explain and analyse the diverse approaches and concepts of tailor-made as well as more standardized cross-border VET programmes in the Greater Region SaarLorLux (DE, FR, LUX, BE) and explain the different mobility types (from short-time exchange programmes, to internships as well as a formalised division of mobility between days of apprenticeship in one country and days of practical training in another country). This cross-border region is the largest transboundary commuting area and therefore the largest transboundary labour market in the EU. [less ▲]

This contribution deals with the daily cross-border practices of the inhabitants of Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Wallonia. It will deal with various aspects of unquestioned activities that are regularly carried out in a country other than the country of residence. The dimension of regular physical mobility in a transnational perspective will have to be integrated into this analysis insofar as cross-border everyday practices represent routine activities associated with a circular (pendular) movement that extends beyond neighbouring national territories. From this point of view, it should be emphasised that the Greater Region SaarLorLux is already experiencing pronounced cross-border mobility phenomena: mobility in the context of employment and in the context of residential migration.

In the Greater Region SaarLorLux, it is estimated that around 1,000 new churches were built or old ones completely renovated during the 20th century. Strong population growth due to industrialisation, the destruction caused by the two wars and the resulting displacement of people also had an impact on church building. Developments within the Church itself also play a role in the architecture, especially the debate on the liturgy which began at the beginning of the 20th century and ended with a reform at the Second Vatican Council, and which had a greater or lesser influence in the different regions.

In the Greater Region SaarLorLux, which consists of Lorraine, Luxembourg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and Wallonia, the beginnings of beer date back to the Roman occupation. At first, beer was brewed mainly in monasteries. The oldest evidence of a monastic brewery is found in Lorraine, dating from 771 BC, and in Luxembourg only from around 1300. In both regions, religious institutions were the main type of brewery until the industrialization. The first evidence of a municipal brewery dates back to the 12th century; in the beginning, these breweries did not compete with the monasteries. In Wallonia, too, monastic breweries developed until the French occupation, and hence secularisation, brought the business to a halt from 1794. Today, most of the remaining breweries in the Greater Region are part of international groups. There are still a few independent breweries, such as in Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland, where one of Germany's largest brewing groups, the Karlsberg Group, dominates the industry. In addition to these national companies, since the 1980s, microbreweries have begun to emerge with an exclusively local scope. They ensure that local brewing techniques are not lost. [less ▲]

The study examines the commercial agglomerations in the inner border regions of the Greater SaarLor-Lux Region on the basis of our own surveys conducted between 2010 and 2012. It quantifies and typifies the commercial offer according to the size and composition of shopping centres. The territory covered is made up of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Belgian, German and French conurbations within a 20-minute drive from the Luxembourg border. This isochrone includes the following cities and their conurbations: Trier and Bitburg in Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarbrücken in Saarland, Metz, Thionville and Longwy in Lorraine as well as Arlon and Bastogne in Wallonia. Only one nodule is located beyond this zone: the Fashion Outlet Zweibrücken in Zweibrucken. It appears in the database because of its wide reach and its ability to recruit customers as far away as Luxembourg. [less ▲]

La Suisse et le Luxembourg sont particulièrement concernés par le travail frontalier. Ces deux pays accueillent à eux seuls plus d’un demi-million de travailleurs frontaliers et recourent à la main-d’œuvre frontalière depuis plusieurs décennies. Petits pays dynamiques ayant d’importants besoins de main-d’œuvre, ils se caractérisent par des différentiels liés à la présence de frontières (différentiels de prix immobiliers, de taux de chômage, de salaires, de niveaux d’activité économique … avec les pays voisins). Ces différentiels entretiennent la dynamique du travail frontalier (Belkacem et Pigeron-Piroth, 2016). [less ▲]

The first railways are mentioned in connection with the mining of Agricola in 1556. From the end of the 18th century onwards, the first long-distance horse-drawn railways were built, some of which created real networks. The first railway line to use steam locomotives was the Stockton and Darlington Railway, 40 kilometres long, commissioned in 1825 in England. On the continent, the first steam railway line was opened on 5 May 1835 in Belgium, between Brussels and Mechelen, while the line opened in 1831 in France, from Saint-Etienne to Lyon, as well as the one in December 1835 in Germany, between Nürnberg and Fürth, were only rarely used by locomotives, but rather by horse-drawn vehicles. This article deals with the first railway connections in the various regions of the Greater Region SaarLorLux. [less ▲]

With regard to demographic change and the decline in birth rates in some parts of the Greater Region SaarLorLux, migration has become increasingly significant in recent years. The population growth currently observed in the Greater Region is also primarily due to significant gains in migration. Between 1990 and 2006, net immigration to the Greater Region amounted to 558,500 persons, although migration influenced population development to varying degrees in the individual sub-regions.

Consisting of four entities, regions or states, located in the heart of Europe, the Greater Region SaarLorLux has long been considered a territory with a rich industrial past of great dynamism. Among the many branches of activity, there is one that has long been a flagship of its skills: ceramics. The term "ceramics" covers a certain number of very different products in terms of their appearance and properties, all made from fired clay. Over time, manufacturing techniques have evolved to produce less and less porous and finer designs. The applications of this material have thus expanded considerably. Working with clay is a long-standing tradition in this region, as the first ceramics discovered at archaeological sites are 7 000 years old. So, for thousands of years, potters made objects out of fired clay. [less ▲]

The administrative division of the Greater Region (2008: 65,398 km², 11.4 million inhabitants) is not homogeneous. The different areas of the Grande Région have different statuses: The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a sovereign state, Wallonia is a region of Belgium, Lorraine was until the end of 2015 one of the 26 regions of France, is from 1.10.2016 part of the new region Grand Est, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland are German Länder. The size and number of inhabitants of the municipalities as well as their competences differ significantly from each other, not least because there has been no municipal reform in France, but also because of the different political and economic structures.

The textile industry has had a long time to transform the industrial landscape of the Greater Region SaarLorLux, as it is one of the earliest industrialised economic activities. Often born on a proto-industrial basis, it was mechanised very early on in most of its branches (from spinning to weaving, dyeing, bleaching and printing to clothing) and thus formed, sometimes, vast industrial concentrations, which imposed themselves alongside more modest establishments. However, this pioneering industry is now often presented in Europe as an activity of the past, the bulk of which has been relocated to low labour cost countries in the South. [less ▲]

This paper examines everyday practices carried out by the inhabitants of Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Wallonia in neighbouring regions abroad. The key consideration here is that the Greater Region SaarLorLux can be defined as a cross-border reality of life based on the cross-border implementation of everyday practices of its inhabitants. In such a socio-constructivist perspective, it is not asked what the Greater Region SaarLorLux is, but in what ways it is constituted or how it manifests itself in the everyday life of its inhabitants.
