Full article 

The article explores the evolution of the status and functions of borders. The aim of the study is to analyze the concepts of sovereignty in changing external conditions and to correlate their evolution with the changing functions and status of borders. New interpretations of sovereignty as categories of the determining model of economic development are revealed. The role of the economy in the formation of mobile, multifactor, unstable borders is shown. Diagnostics of key types of the globalization process that have a systemic effect on the character of the development of border regions has been carried out. Based on this, a typology of the border regions of Europe is proposed, which have an impact on the social and economic development of the border regions of Russia.

Keywords: national state, cross-border cooperation, sovereignty, globalization, regional development.
