Since the enlargements of 2004 and 2007, the process of European integration has brought about major changes for the citizens of Central and Eastern Europe. Facing a process of rebordering, some of them may seem stuck behind a new "Iron Curtain". Indeed, citizens from non-EU countries encounter new obstacles to travel into EU countries that were previously easily accessible. This situation is the starting point of a postdoctoral research, which will be presented, on border identities of the Romanian populations located on the "wrong" side of the border with the EU, in Ukraine, Serbia and Moldova.

Sponsored by the East Central European Center, the Njegos Fund for Serbia Studies, the Nicolae Iorga Chair, and the Ukrainian Studies Program.
