About the conference
The emergence of a more integrated world where national borders are simultaneously opened and closed, neglected and claimed, has given a new impetus to studies aimed at building a better understanding of the challenges the cross-border regions are facing and ways to address them.
One of the most widely used concepts in contemporary scholarship to analyze economic, social, environmental and other dimensions is the concept of sustainable development, which has a potential to build on both macro- and micro- approaches to design, evaluate, and forecast development of cross-border regions. In turn, sustainability is a complex concept that covers multiple goals of environment, economy, and society.
Consequently, the main focus of the conference is to discuss how the contemporary scholarship on Sustainable Development can be used to address the emerging threats and challenges of cross-border regions, whether it would be economic or social issues, environmental degradation and protection, natural resources management, or sustainable governance of large cross-border regions. Cross-border regions are the establishments where sustainability is most likely to be challenges and where new sustainable solutions are most likely to emerge.
The International Conference on Sustainable Development of Cross-border Regions is organized to anticipate the voiced interest of the respective research community to review progress in Sustainable Development, Regional Studies, and Cross-border Studies and discuss related challenges and innovations in a scientific conference format.
The International Conference on Sustainable Development of Cross-Border Areas will be held at the Altai State University on April 19-20, 2019. All interested are invited to attend.
The conference materials will be indexed in the Scopus and Web of Science - Core Collection - CPCI databases.
