The spatialising politics of EUropean political practice : transacting "eastness" in the European Union

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Building on recent academic exchanges theorising sociospatial relations, the AA. argue that it is not sociospatial concepts or metaphors per se that delineate the substance of such relations. It is rather the different politics by and through which these concepts are conceived, represented, and mobilised by elite actors. The context of EU sociospatialities is examined, illustrated through elite activities in the wake of the 2004 accession to the EU. The assertion and performance of concepts such as space, territory and positionality by elite actors created novel forms of politics which have become pivotal to the reconfiguration of EU space
