Since the very first Roundtables on Transnationality in 2004 the Irmgard Coninx Foundation supports publications of the workshop outcomes. Our publications seek in-depth analysis of questions raised during the Roundtables. Therefore they go beyond a mere conference documentation and bring together revisions of essays that were previously submitted to the Roundtables, edited versions of keynote speeches plus additional contributions from experts who were not involved in the workshops. These books offer an opportunity for young scholars to publish, to get feedback from senior scholars and to participate as editors of these volumes. Often these editions are prepared in separate additional workshops.
