The 2020 issue contains essays reflecting „on the multilevel and everyday significance of borders by engaging in border thinking exercises. This kind of thinking suggests a kind of mindfulness as well as critical self-reflection on the ways in which we negotiate and make borders as part of our social interactions.” (J.W. Scott, Introduction)
The authors discuss popular concepts of border studies such as borderscaping, securitisation, migration and borders, co-creation, dialogue-based cross-border cooperation. The volume includes the review of Frank Furedi’s latest book, ’Why Borders Matter’ and a research note on the effects of COVID-19 on borders.
