Borders in Globalization 

Borders in Globalization studies borders, boundary and bordering policies in 15 countries; this presentation will underscore our first findings regarding territorial and a-territorial bordering processes. How bordering policies are progressively straddling boundaries and displacing bordering processes according to function and not territory.
