New publication: Mountains of Europe - Stakeholders, legitimization, delineation

Europe's mountains are the topic of a new publication in the series Revue de géographie alpine / Journal of Alpine Research. Six essays in French and in English by renowned scientists such as Werner Bätzing have been compiled under keywords such as "Stakeholders, legitimization, delineation".
The publication focuses on three main points: the development of political programmes and organisations that advocate an improvement in the situation in mountain regions; the new role and location of alpine regions, which as a result of the EU's enlargement to the east have shifted from a geographically marginal position to the very centre of Europe; the geographic definition and description of European mountains. A great deal of space is dedicated to both the Alpine Convention and the Carpathian Convention.
