Message from the Guest Editor
Dear Colleagues,

The goal of this Special Issues is to critically analyze the implications of the increased solidification of national borders that we are currently experiencing worldwide. We invite submissions on:

  • The rise of the modern nation-state and the birth of borders.
  • The historical connection between nation-building, contention, and border policing.
  • The spread of discourses around “border security.” The military  and  civilian  surveillance  of  political borders.
  • The effect    of    border    discourse    on    everyday interactions away from border regions.
  • Theoretical and   methodological   innovations   to transcend methodological-nationalism.
  • Connections between  categorical  inequality  and immigrant exclusion.
  • What could    be    feasible    alternatives    to    the international system of nation-states?

We aim to produce a high-quality Special Issue with contributions from scholars with an active research agenda. Papers should be written in a clear way with scholars and students in mind as well as a wider audience. The paper will be peer-reviewed, and there will be no publication costs for you.
