Neue Veröffentlichung: D.J. Andersen, M. Klatt & M. Sandberg – The Border Multiple

The Border Multiple
The Practicing of Borders between Public Policy and Everyday Life in a Re-scaling Europe

Dorte Jagetić Andersen, University of Southern Denmark, Martin Klatt, University of Southern Denmark, Marie Sandberg, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Addressing and conceptualizing the changing character of borders in contemporary Europe, this book examines developments occurring in the light of European integration processes and an on-going tightening of Europe’s external borders. Moreover, the book suggests new ways of investigating the nature of European borders by looking at border practices in the light of the mobility turn, and thus as dynamic, multiple, diverse and best expressed in everyday experiences of people living at and with borders, rather than focusing on static territorial divisions between states and regions at geopolitical level. It provides border scholars and researchers as well as policymakers with new empirical and theoretical evidence on the de- and re-bordering processes going on in diverse border regions in Europe, both within and outside of the EU.

Master of Social Science in European Studies

The Faculty of Business and Social Sciences
University of Southern Denmark, campus Sønderborg

Profile

“Europe of Regions” has become an increasingly fashionable way to describe European integration, but politicians, businesses and civil society usually do not have a clear picture of what “Europe of Regions” actually means. The aim of the Sønderborg profile in the European Studies program offered in cooperation with the University of Flensburg is to make the students familiar with ‘regions’ in the broadest sense, using historical, cultural, political, administrative and economical approaches to the term ‘region’ and illustrate the concept within European integration. The program includes a sophisticated course of qualitative social science methods. A special focus will be put on borders and border regions. Borders still represent barriers to integration, and border regions are laboratories of European integration.

A special feature of the study program is the opportunity to take electives at the University of Flensburg in the third semester, including the possibility to earn a dual degree. Other options are to specialize by taking electives within the other master programs offered at the Department of Border Region Studies in Sønderborg, or take a company/institution internship or study abroad.

The master programme European Studies (two years) is offered in co-operation with the University of Flensburg. All classes are taught in English. In the first year, you have to choose between two tracks: a track offered in Sønderborg focussing on the popular concept of the “Europe of Regions”, where you will be introduced to regions in an interdisciplinary program with a special focus on borders and border regions as laboratories of European integration. A track offered at the University of Flensburg focuses on more general aspects of European integration. In the third semester, students choose electives from either campus to specialise according to their interests. The master thesis is written at SDU in the fourth semester.

Career opportunities

The study program intends to provide the students with broad and specialized knowledge within political, economic and cultural aspects of the “Europe of Regions”, along with the ability to use scientific methods. This offers a broad range of qualified career opportunities with leadership potential:

  • Senior officers in EU institutions
  • Senior officers/European consultants at institutions on the level of national, regional, local and cross-border governance (regional offices, euro regions, municipalities Senior positions in private enterprises and the media European consultants
  • Senior positions in private enterprises and the media
  • European consultants
  • Academia

Assistant Professorship in International Business-to-Business Relations and Supply Chain Management

Job description

At the Department of Border Region Studies (IFG), University of Southern Denmark, Campus Sønderborg, applications are invited for a position as Assistant Professor within the priority area Business-to-Business Relations & Supply Chain Management. The position has a time limit of three years. Expected start is autumn 2011.

The Department is situated in the beautiful premises at Alsion on the shore facing Sønderborg and the island of Als. From here there is only 30 minutes by car to the Danish-German border, only 35 minutes by plane to Copenhagen. Hamburg, Kiel, Aarhus and Odense can be reached by car within 1½ – 2 hours. Sønderborg has a rich cultural life and is surrounded by pretty landscapes inviting for recreational activities. The SDU-Campus Sønderborg houses Social Sciences, Humanities as well as Technical Sciences.

The Department of Border Region Studies (IFG) is rooted in the unique history of the Southern Danish border region. At the same time, the department has a close relationship with the business community and the cultural institutions of the region. The comparative aspect including other (border) regions in Europe is particularly strong within the regional studies and within the border region studies. Due to a strong focus on comparative aspects the department has developed a broad international research network within Europe. In addition, the department has a special obligation to carrying out research relating to the German minority in Southern Jutland.

The IFG has three research priority groups: 1) Business-to-Business Relations & Supply Chain Management; 2) Regional Economics and the Spatial Dimension of Economics, and 3) People and Society in Border Regions. Research results disseminate in English, Danish and German in monographs, in national as well as international peer reviewed journals, and to the general public in the regional and national printed and digital media.

International Business-to-Business Relations and Supply Chain Management

The research priority group in Business-to-Business (B2B) Relations and Supply Chain Management (SCM) is still in the first phase of being established and manned. Its aim is to create new knowledge as to the interaction of the businesses. The focus is on relations in the total chain of activities from sub-supplier to the end-customer. The research in Supply Chain Management (SCM) is concentrated on international marketing. In order to create the desirable coverage it is therefore necessary to consolidate the competences in B2B marketing and create new competences within especially SCM and Logistics – important subjects at the Master of Science programme in Sønderborg.

The research in B2B as well as in SCM has natural interfaces with the other business-, regional- and macroeconomic research areas at IFG.

Selection Criteria

Applications are welcome from candidates working in any area of relevance to International Business-to-Business Relations and Supply Chain Management, but preference will be given to candidates with competence and interest to stimulate and strengthen collaboration with the other research groups at the department.

The successful candidate will be expected to

  • engage in research of an international standard corresponding to his or her position
  • contribute to the further development of the priority area,
  • play an active role in securing research funding,
  • publish in peer-reviewed academic journals as well as engage in other forms and levels of research dissemination,
  • participate in the teaching and administrative work of the Department, including but not restricted to the candidate’s area of specialisation.
  • supervise, or assist in the supervision of students as required,
  • undertake administrative duties as requested by the Head of Department.

The successful candidate will also be expected to satisfy the following selection criteria:

  • A doctorate in an appropriate field.
  • Proven research ability as judged by, inter alia,
  • the number and quality of monographs and refereed publications;
  • experience in research and teaching;
  • any research grant awards;
  • the ability to make an appropriate contribution to graduate teaching, including PhD supervision as well as to contribute to undergraduate programmes;
  • the ability to contribute to course development, including but not restricted to his or hers area of specialisation.

The department offers teaching at all levels within business administration (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration), in Business Relationship Management (Master of Science) and in European Studies. Fall 2012 a new master in Regional Economics and Development will be started. The department is also responsible for teaching the business economics components to the BSc Negot in Chinese in Sønderborg and is engaged in research and teaching collaboration with the Mads Clausen Department (Technical Faculty, Sønderborg, SDU) and with the neighbouring University of Flensburg, Germany.

App. 500 students from 50 countries worldwide are enrolled at the department. Teaching language is English only.
