Topics of migration, mobility, and borders gained a new relevance in the world after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. The world has become acutely aware that national borders have taken on a different meaning and are no longer secure mechanisms that provide for the safety of any country's citizens. At the same time, international organizations and agreements have encouraged the movement of people as well as goods across borders. The authors of this volume describe how borders have become constructed and permeated through analyses on a range of topics, including migration, colonialism, refugees, minority politics, international politics, and identity politics. This group of international contributors address how these issues are situated in different parts of the world, including Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia, and the United States.Geisen, Thomas is the author of 'Migration, Mobility, And Borders Issues of Theory And Policy', published 2005 under ISBN 9783889397140 and ISBN 388939714X.
