This book explores the emerging forms and functions of contemporary mobile borders. It deals with issues of security, technology, migration and cooperation while addressing the epistemological and political questions that they raise. The 'borderities' approach illuminates the question of how borders can be the site of both power and counter-power.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is a valuable contribution to border studies, not in the least because it offers useful insights for understanding contemporary border regimes at a time when we cannot afford the luxury of ignoring them. Thus, for border scholars it offers a neologism and plenty of food for thought whereas for those not familiar with border studies it may work as a kind of eye-opener challenging deeply embedded perceptions about borders." (Jaume Castan Pinos, Journal of Borderlands Studies, September, 2016)

"Borderities and the Politics of Contemporary Mobile Borders is a cohesive collection that contributes to ongoing debates over the nature of borders and their relation to sovereignty, territory and spatial politics. ... it should be well received by students as well as fellow researchers. ... what it offers is an insightful series of orientation points to the complexity, contingency and human cost of constructing and maintaining the lines, processes and practices that divide populations the world over." (Jonathan Darling, Progress in Human Geography, Vol. 40 (5), 2016)
