Mediterranean Borders In Globalization

This project, the Mediterranean Borders In Globalization (MBIG) project is premised on the assumption that the territorial framework for understanding borders is being challenged fundamentally through new technologies of information and communication that are now regularly applied in the monitoring, surveillance and security of borders. Rather than territorial, new borders are potentially, a-territorial. They are biometric and, also possibly everywhere. This process, however, is progressive and takes varied forms across the world; international boundaries, walled borders, and other bordering policies are still very much part of our world but new borders and bordering processes are also appearing: this ground breaking research program is focusing on this transition with a specific focus on new borders and bordering processes around the world and particularly across the European Union Mediterranean regions.
