Ethnographic Research in Border Areas

It has become common knowledge, when we talk about borders, to assert, firstly, that we live in a borderless and de-territorialized world where the significance of geopolitical borders has changed through the processes of globalization, the formation of supranational organizations, regional integration, and the power of cyberspace (the advancement and spread of information technology), and secondly, that borders have become more permeable via the constant movement of people, capital, goods and information. Some recurrent depictions of the above mentioned two views are the metaphorical depictions of borders as a membrane or a bridge. This represents a vision of the world that has been shaped by a capitalist, neo-liberal perspective according to which the permeability of borders is a current project that is desired and actively promoted.
