Transboundary mountain regions in Europe emerge as normative spaces at the intersection of territorial and environmental governance. Constituting a meeting point of different national legal orders under the umbrella of international regimes, they have become natural laboratories for the development of cross-border law.

Now the European Union (EU) is facing a new type of challenge, which will probably lead to further treaty modifications. The pace of the evolution of European integration, which so far largely de...
