Meetings in the Netherlands and Belgium


EUCAM research fellow Khurshid Zafari and EUCAM coordinator Jos Boonstra visited Baarle-Nassau (The Netherlands) and Baarle-Hertog (Belgium) to have meetings with representatives of both municipalities as well as a local historian and expert on enclaves. The region can best be described as ‘one village, two municipalities, 30 enclaves, 2 countries’. This patchwork of enclaves could offer some interesting experiences in settling dispute, determining borders and developing practical solutions for the eight enclaves in the Fergana Valley of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
