Contrary to earlier assumptions of globalisation literature, which predicted ongoing debordering and a diminishing role of borders, borders seem to be making a comeback in the 21st century. Border regions remain significant places of political development. This workshop examines three conflicted borders in different parts of the world (UK/Ireland, Israel/Palestine and India/Bangladesh/Nepal) and discusses the way they shape political discourse.
