Trans-borderness in a New Era: Integration, Identities and Cooperation for Sustainable Development
Tatiana Kuchinskaya, Sun Limei, Alina Steblyanskya


In recent years, the modern world  is increasingly characterized as unstable, dynamic,  prone to crises: financial and economic , socio-political, socio-cultural, humanitarian, ecological, anthropological[1]. The world architectonics of a New Era is losing its former fragmentation, local isolation, becoming fragile and unsafe that forces the mankind to think about its common destiny and the way of sustainable development in terms of regionalization and globalization[2]. Nation-state centralized paradigm of development is being replaced by regional and transregional paradigms of integration. The paradigm shift actualizes the search for a new humanitarian and scientific image of the world and the innovative methods of its research and construction[3].

The issues of transborderness in a New Era for sustainable development come to the fore due to a  newly emerging forms of integration: within transregional entities of BRICS, Arctic region, Eurasian Union, Belt and Road Initiative in different parts of the World and even in other spacial dimensions, like Internet, AL, open space etc.  Thus, in the context of global transformations, development paradigms transition , there is a special interest in the problems of the cognitive methodology of transbordeness phenomenon  complicated by new factors: IR, global governance, universal human  values, cultural and civilization modernization, economic models ESG -principle shifts, innovative knowledge –based development[4].

At the moment, there is no generally accepted definition and common interpretation of the concept of transborderness. Representatives of different branches of science have their own vision of the phenomenon. So as there is no well developed indicators scales of management for sustainable development and innovative models of such regional systems[5].

Accordingly, it is necessary to develop multidisciplinary dialogue  in the field of Transborder Studies for better understanding the forming reality and find the tools, skills and to construct and manage it. There is no doubt that synergy of humanitarian, social and natural scientific methods should be part of Transborder Studies for sustainable growth. It is also the controversially question, how multiculturalism intercivilizationalism comprehensiveness of a new transborderness could influence standard economical and national unique models of development. Joining our efforts, of scientists from different continents and scientific branches contributed to better understanding the essence and principles of a new transborderness[6].
