Abstract

This paper will examine how EU integration processes inform developments in the border region between Slovenia and Hungary by focusing on EU funding as an instrument of cross-border integration. Ethnographic interviews serve as a means for ascertaining how actors in the border region experience these EU funding initiatives, what sorts of changes these projects introduce, what sorts of networks they facilitate, and how they inform borderland experience and development.
