Border Crossings Network Since 2003

In light of the latest developments with regard to the spread of the Covid-19, the restrictions imposed by national governments, universities and regional and local authorities, the coordinating team of the Border Crossings Network has decided to cancel the 2020 International Student Conference and the 2020 Konitsa Summer School. Our primary concern is the safety of all participants in the BCN activities. We remain committed to our goals and look forward to organizing the 2021 events.
