As globalization advances, trends and shifts in society can be seen influencing several economic and socioeconomic aspects. As cross-border cooperation has been increasing across various regions, this leads to a variety of changes in markets, both established and emerging, trading methods, and management aspects. As a result of this, it is important to study the changes, either negative or positive, on an economic and social level emanating from this phenomenon. The interrelationship between international environments, transactions, and cooperation projects can trigger a long-lasting process of transforming economic and socioeconomic conditions, leading to more enabling and sustainable cities, societies, and regions. The results from new and stronger business networks and cluster environments created through cooperation projects, strategies, synergies, and transactions are already reshaping the socioeconomic European panorama.
Contextually, the present Special Issue (SI) expects to cross and analyze the dynamics and patterns ongoing in this international environments—bearing in mind the sustainability principles and the related issues that may influence it. Thus, the international environments and their relationship with emerging markets, not only in Europe but all over the globe, as well as the rising phenomenon of economic development and entrepreneurship, are just some examples of the issues that will be expected to be discussed within this SI.
Thus, the editors encourage the submission of works related to the topics of international relationships, international business, international trade, economic development, cross-border cooperation, common planning, emerging markets, entrepreneurship, sustainable planning, territorial governance, and management, among many others that could relate to the main scope of the SI and consequently provide new and enriched literature regarding the importance of cross-border cooperation.
