Abstract

After centuries of belonging to Hungary, the multiethnic region of Transcarpathia is now a Ukrainian border region with Central Europe. Particularly the multiethnicity lend the region a strong identity and the potential to act as a Ukrainian bridgehead to Central europe and the EU. Despite cross-border trade and a fairly active role by the Hungarians in the establishment of cross-border contacts, the region has to date only fullfilled the function of an economically weak periphery. The question of whether it will be able to grow out of this role depends on the macropolitical orientation of Ukraine : will it decide to maintain closer ties to the EU or to Russia ? - (IFL)
