INSIGHTS Public Lecture: Whatever happened to our borderless world? at Newcastle University

About

Professor Nick Megoran, Newcastle University

The fall of the Berlin Wall was heralded as the dawn of a new 'borderless world.' Yet three decades on, from Brexit to Trump, this sounds like a hollow dream as the world has seen a proliferation of border fences and walls unmatched in human history. The geographical reality is more complex, with the world becoming more bordered for some people and less bordered for others. This lecture will examine the changing role of borders and walls over time, and asks whether it is still reasonable to hope for a borderless world.
