ECMI participates in the 60th Political Studies Association Annual
Conference in Edinburgh, UK 29 March to 1st April 2010 
http://www.ecmi.de/37/03/30/Press-Release.php

The creation of regional spaces for politics across national borders and
the role of national minorities in border regions is the theme of a
paper delivered by Dr. Tove H. Malloy, ECMI Director at the 60th
Political Studies Association Annual Conference "Sixty Years of
Political Studies: Achievements and Futures" from 29 March to 1 April
2010 in Edinburgh. The aspect of national minority in regional politics
is under-explored in regional studies, Dr. Malloy argues. Taking as
starting point the way in which regional and minority actors in the
Danish-German border region collectively mobilize to build cross-border
capacity, Dr. Malloy will discuss how regions as spaces for politics may
be de-linked from formal boundaries to embrace territorial hybridity and
de-territorialization of politics, and how national minorities in the
Danish-German border region have emerged as key actors contributing to
the construction anew of an "old" border region through politicization
of regional territory; re-framing ideologies of EU polity-building;
mobilization of intra-regional networks; usage of intra-state
territorial politics. Dr. Malloy's contribution is part of a panel on
regional politics which will appear as a Special Issue in the Journal
for Regional and Federal Studies later this year.

Place and Date: Edinburgh, 29 March - 01 April 2010
