Summary/Abstract: The shaping and continuous transformation of the meaning of borders and frontiers has strongly influenced the relations among different formal and informal actors across Europe and across the world. In most of the cases, the reconfiguration of borders has been made according to post-conflict arrangements and specifically related to particular historical contexts. Therefore, there is a general negative perception on patterns and formulas of border and frontier configuration having in mind that at least for Europe, nationalism and state oriented approaches have dominated the current political geography of the Old Continent. Accordingly, any public speech related to borders/frontiers still contains a large amount of arguments oriented on national/state interest in relation with other states/governments. To some extent, the political leadership is using this approach for political purposes within the state and addressed to internal public opinion. And as the current crisis within the EU affects all the member states and the Union, nationalism and populism is falsifying the European message and one of its main goals: to preserve peace and stability.
