Moreover, the school provides young researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to present their projects, participate in public events and discussions, and join an international network of scholars. The borderland-studies field is broad and interdisciplinary, and explores connections, divisions and heterogeneities. The school proposes a set of theoretical approaches and methods of studying and working with the topic of borderlands. While focused primarily on Ukraine, the summer school provides a complex comparative framework of borderlands in East Central Europe and the Black Sea Region.

The summer school format combines lectures, seminars, city walks, workshops, discussions, and public events.
