"This week, at Hafen City University, more than 150 scientists are discussing the meaning of changes to border regions at the Border Regions in Change conference. During the keynote, a U.S. professor spoke about the situation at the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The conference also addressed European policy amid the ongoing debate about refugees. This is the 15th version of the conference, which traditionally takes place in a border region. Participants will make a trip to the border area between Germany and Denmark before the conference concludes in the Danish city of Soneburg."
