Description

After the fall of the Iron Curtain, the world has seen unprecedented levels of interconnectedness. Globalization and transnational flows of people, goods, capital, and information were expected to render borders less and less important. 30 years later, the opposite seems to have happened: Around the world, borders are heavily protected, contested, or even unilaterally redrawn. In this session we will explore the (renewed) role of borders in a seemingly borderless world. How should states and international organizations deal with the conflicting demands of open and secure borders? In what ways do we have to change our approach to borders in times of accelerating globalization?
