Border discourse: changing identities, changing nations, changing stories in European border communities

Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


The objective of the project was to inquire into social uncertainty and insecurity, to examine if these two phenomena were important and to address their occurrence in contemporary societies with an emphasis on European social diversity. Research took place in France, Greece, Hungary and the UK. The UIE project was based on the thesis of a vicious circle: institutions and organisations of both the private and public sector deliver an expanding, highly reliable environment that has led to unprecedented degrees of certainty concerning specific institutional operations. For example, an interrupted abundance of food at the local supermarket, community care, on time delivery of goods and services, to name a few.
