The end of the Cold War and the 'unfreezing' of borders, especially in Europe and
Central Asia, with the emergence of a considerable number of new independent
states, have resulted in an increasing interest in issues related to borders and
territory. Scholars from various disciplines have examined and explored both the
functions and the significance of borders as territorial inter-state demarcations
and, increasingly, their symbolic meanings and roles in the constitution of

AND KNOWLEDGE MAANO RAMUTSINDELA Introduction Interest in border
research has fluctuated over time, reflecting in the main the question of the
significance of borders in society. The claim that borders had lost their
significance in the supposedly borderless world gave impetus to border studies
in the 1980s when scholars sought to challenge sweeping statements proposed
in the borderless world thesis (Newman and Paasi 1998, Diener and Hagen
2010). Since then, border ...

Reductions in the quantity and quality of water in relation to human demands limit
the attainment of things that people value, like good health, eco- nomic growth
and employment. Nowadays, the Yellow River Basin is a region of water scarcity,
pollution (Lohmar et al. 2003; SEPA 2002) and risk of flood (Li and Finlayson
1993; Mei and Dregne 2001). In this chapter, we deploy an analysis of the
problems of the Yellow River to question the significance of borders, boundaries
and access ...

Borders are constitutive of what they contain; pivotal to mismatches and
contradictions between different states; and pivotal also to our contradictory world
system. Goods and capital move more freely across borders while people are
more regulated. Tendencies towards a relatively globalized economy are in
disjuncture with a multiplicity of bordered states. The Changing Significance of
European Borders Liam O'Dowd It is necessary to understand how state borders
in Europe are ...

In the 1980s no such wider understanding prevailed but geographers engaged in
the study of borders and borderlands anticipated the growing importance and
changes in the significance of borders, and the need to coordinate their research
efforts on an international scale. At the international Symposium on Boundaries
and the Cultural Landscape (Internationales Symposium-Grenze und
Kulturlandschaft), held in Basel, October 5-8, 1981, participants resolved that the

perceptions of regions that defy and transcend the borders of the singular
nationstate. This essay provides a brief survey of some of these works, and offers
a handful of concluding thoughts on new methods and avenues of inquiry that
scholars interested in ...

This consensus was not simply a product of the territorial fixity or physical
presence of those borders or the political and military resources devoted to

West. There existed Cold War consensus on the global significance of borders,
encapsulated in the following terms; 'while all borders are important, some
borders are more ...
