The material gathered in this book presents the results of a research project supported by the European Commission under the Fifth Framework Programme - EXLINEA: Lines of Exclusion as Arenas of Co-operation: Reconfiguring the External Borders of Europe: Policies, Practices and Perceptions with the financial support of the Polish State Committee for Scientific Research. The book is devoted to the relations and cooperation in the trans-border region (Polish-Ukrainian and Polish-Belarusian). Special attention is given to finding the answer to the question of whether the enlarged EU will emerge as a "Fortress Europe" or as a "Golden Curtain". Considering this, the challenges for the study was to present the role of the trans-border co-operation, the perception of cooperation in the eyes of regional and local stakeholders, the evaluation of established EU-financed programmes and the role of the institutions in promoting cross-border co-operation.
