We are pleased to announce that the publication on the Danube Summer School 2014 is now available in the book stores.

The publication documents the Danube Summer School 2014. The contributions of participants and speakers make clear that the Danube has to be perceived as an phenomenon that also creates identity and that the EU strategy for the Danube region has aroused great hopes and expectations especially at the middle and lower Danube.

The work of students and young scholars show that the Danube Region in all its cultural, political and social diversity can establish a moment of identity and may serve as the basis of the much discussed and often demanded close cooperation and integration.

Besides the presentation of the event this publication provides personal opinions and assessments and research on the Danube Region. Thus the first part contains comments and suggestions, the second part scientific papers by participants.

The contributions are written either in German and in English.
