Euregio magazine has been created and funded in order to promote the creation of a new transborder Institution called â€˜Euroregionâ€™ in the area around Northern Adriatic.
This Euroregional project is that willing to involve as founders of Euroregion the following regions and Nation State: Carinthia, Friuli – Venezia Giulia, Istria, Primorsko-Goranska county, Slovenia and Veneto.
Objectives of ‘Euregio’
The main objective of this review is answering to the question:
‘How can the Institution of the Euroregion be helpful to the citizens of these areas?’
Secondarily, the review will highlight what are or what can be seen as the shared cultural discourses within the EuroRegion. Moreover, the review will trigger views and opinions of citizens of the EuroRegion about this institutional, political and cultural project.
We want to provide a â€˜Europeanâ€™ constructive answer to such problems as social exclusion, rise of ethnic conflicts, homologation of traditional European cultures within consumerism, conservative extreme liberalism marketed and imposed by exogenous powers like foreign multi-nationals.
We are particularly interested in portraying the encounter of the cultures traditionally based in the territory with sovranational discourses and dynamics.
Readership: our target group
The journal is printed now in 12,000 copies: 9,000 of them are issued in the Italian-English version; 3,000 of them are issued in the Slovenian-English version and other 3,000 copies are issued in the German-English version.
The magazine is crafted for those well-educated female and male citizens of EuroRegion between 23 years old and 45. We are thinking to relatively young demographics as, hopefully, these should be the most open to political and cultural innovation and should be more prone to embrace transborder and multicultural actions and discourses.
Identity of the review: the rhetoric approach
– â€˜EUREGIOâ€™ review is mostly based on the narrations of episodes taken from the life of European citizens engaged in practices of transborder and multi-cultural cooperation. We want to provide a set of accounts about already happened stories where European funding in transborder areas provided a successful impact on individuals and communities. The scenario of our gathering of stories is the entirety of Europe. We find particularly interesting and provoking this approach as, usually, the texts that one encounters about EU-funded transborder cooperation are obviously lacking descriptions of the effective and practical outcomes of these interventions.
– The source of our data is taken from original or existing research mostly in the field and through the methods of social sciences, history and journalism. Our authors should understand that an academic standard is required in terms of reliability of data and structure of their authored text.
