Cross-border mobility is of particular importance in the border regions, as it is part of the every-day life of citizens to cross the border, either to get to their work places or for leisure purposes. It can be said that border regions are engines and also laboratories of cross-border cooperation. No other continent than Europe has such a dense net of national borders. At these interfaces, different cultural and linguistic and, above all, also legal and administrative systems clash. Social security is a remarkable example for the complexity of the barriers, which can be found at the internal and external borders of the European Union.

The present project focuses particularly on the barriers of social security in border regions. Due to their peripheral location and the clashing of different social security systems, legislation, languages and cultures, these regions are often handicapped. Furthermore, it is often extremely difficult for small groups to be heard in the capitals.
