Authors undertake the analysis of border disputes between
Slovenia and Croatia as an example of socioeconomic
processes typical of the European semi-periphery. The
disputes over territorial claims and the acquisitions of
Slovenian companies by their Croatian competitors are
viewed as complementary processes of claiming and
crossing borders, which are based on different notions of
(national) sovereignty. The idea of sovereignty as control
over territory is transformed and complemented into the
notion of sovereignty as national ownership and control
over economic assets. Cross-border takeover is thus
interpreted as losing sovereignty over the national
economy. The dispute over territorial claims has been
since 2009 gradually replaced by media-covered business
and financial transactions between major national
companies (e.g. the case of Agrokor and Mercator). At the
same time, borders are circumvented by wider processes of
market consolidation and capital accumulation to which EU
integration served as a facilitator. This places the issue of
physical borders and territorial sovereignty as well as
economic sovereignty largely into the symbolic arena.
