»The theoretical framework [...] does not only navigate through the book but may offer guidance for everyone who wants to get a basic theoretical understanding of key topics of the dissertation. Ulrich gives a strong emphasis on the conceptualization of participatory governance in the context of cross-border regions, and the readers can dive into the theory of democracy and elaborations about the meaning of civil society. Also, the debate on the evolution of cross-border regions in the EU is very illustrative and possibly helpful for students who would need a structured overview of the purpose and timeline of cross-border cooperation inside of the EU.«
