The Dynamics of Economic Transborder Cooperation between Austria/Carinthia and Slovenia

Doris Wastl-Walter, Andrea Kofler


In the context of the changing relationships among local, national, and supranational entities, this study looks closely at the evolving Austrian/Carinthian-Slovenian border region. The independence of Slovenia and the expansion and consolidation of the European Union have introduced new political and economic conditions to the region, forcing the local population to adapt its lifestyle.
