The borders of Czech state provide for centuries a distinct, unchangeable shape to this country. However, even this traditional and proven statement is not free of contextual layers and varying meanings. This small country in the heart of Europe documents how its borders as expression of stability have been and are at the same time ever-changing, evolving and transitional.Political, geographical and psychological borders: they have always influenced each other. In today´s world, borders are also changing their meanings. The physical borders are disappearing, psychological borders are growing stronger.
Thus, the aim of our European semester is to concentrate on the changing borders of the world (political, geographical and psychological) and to examine their mutual influences.
