Abstract
V předkládaném textu byly představeny postoje starostů a starostek euroregionů Nisa a Šumava k přeshraniční spolupráci, na které bylo nahlíženo optikou teoretického konceptu aktivní hranice. Jeho závěry přináší řadu překvapivých a podnětných poznatků, které se týkají vztahů mezi vnímáním hranice a přeshraniční spolupráce, aktivním zapojováním se do přeshraničních aktivit a hlubšími proměnami příhraničí z hlediska přeshraniční komunikace, integrace a evropeizace.
Abstract (in English)
The aim of the research article is to present opinions of mayors and mayoress from Euroregions Niesse/Nisa/Nysa and Šumava/Bayerischer Wald/Mühlviertel, who are important local agents of cross-border cooperation (CBC). We want to answer the question, whether and to what extent a positive perception of borders and CBC as well as a positive experience with cross-border activities contribute to the process of horizontal (active border) Europeanization and development of complementary and inclusive collective identities. We collected responses to our questionnaire from 79 mayors. Collected data were described statistically, but also analysed with the use of crosstabulation, binary logistic regression and cluster analysis. Firstly, we brought convincing evidence about strong links between agents´ attachment to the EU on the one hand, and the perception of CBC as beneficial for their municipalities. Secondly, mayors´ critical (reflexive) attitudes to historical conflicts and injuries are closely linked to the perception of border as an opportunity. Thirdly, four clusters of agents were identified which differ strongly regarding the extent, to which their identities were transformed in mutual interplay within their CBC experience.
