JournalRevue de géographie alpine - Journal of Alpine Research
Magazine No.Bd. 92, Nr. 2, Juni 2004
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.
