The first scholarship established by ALDA in 2013, dedicated to the Memory of our Honorary President, M. Gianfranco Martini, has been give to Mr. Gianfranco Brusaporci, for his studies in Western Balkans on transborder cooperation. M. Brusaporci received the Price in Pula, during the General Assembly, from the President of ALDA, Oriano Otocan.
The research proposal submitted by Mr Brusaporci, entitled “Euroregions in South Eastern Europe: how to define a good model for the development of the area”, aims at bridging some research gaps of Western studies on relevant themes, related to South Eastern Europe and the role of Euroregions in the European Union.Mr Brusaporci aims to demonstrate how the “cross-borderisation” in Europe does not lead to an increasing territorial fragmentation of national sovereignty, but it could be considered as a form of policy innovation, for the implementation of a minority integration and a social-economic growth, triggered by the emergence of the EU as a supranational policy-maker. The research seeks to validate such an analysis, through a comparative study among all Euroregions, located in Albania, Bulgaria and Macedonia.
The price will also be a financial contribution of 3.000 Euro to the on going research.
