Globalización y proliferación de fronteras: una reseña de los estudios críticos de fronteras

estudiante del doctorado en Relaciones Internacionales y Estudios Africanos del Departamento de Ciencias Políticas y Relaciones Internacionales de la UAM


This review-essay analyses an emerging interdisciplinary literature that studies contemporary bordering practices. This historical period is marked by the end of the Cold War, Globalisation, Postcoloniality and the War on Terror.  To give a name to this literature I adopt the term Critical Border Studies forwarded by Noel Parker and Nick Vaughan-Williams. In the texts reviewed one is able to identify three novel borderscapes; internal, differential and offshore borders.
