EU Enlargement Effects on Cross-border Informal Entrepreneurial Activities

Borderlands, as spaces of various forms of entrepreneurial activities, offer rich examples of informal entrepreneurial activities that depend on the border location to be developed and sustained. Recognizing the heterogeneity of border regions, in terms of formal and social institutional structures, linguistics and ethnicity, the paper offers a nuanced and extended understanding of the difference of the geography of borders, broadly defined, makes to the diversity and persistence/disappearance of cross-border informal entrepreneurial activities since EU enlargement.
