This course aims at understanding the current globalization processes through the emergence, spreading and management of borders. More specifically, it intends to provide the students with some of the theoretical tools to consider several issues at the heart of the current world balance. Thanks to targeted readings and weekly debates, the CM will first discuss historical elements related to the emergence of today’s bordered state system and its link with the previous era of empires thus problematizing notions like borders, boundaries and frontiers. It will also explore the emergence of the border studies as a sub-field of cross-disciplinary domains and its evolution towards the contemporary conceptualization. The globalization process will then be apprehended through terms like “networked borders”, “borderwork” and “borderities” in order to discuss key notions like migrations, border crossings and integrated border management. Finally, the course will open up the debate on the securitization process manifested with a growing incidence of border walling as an apparent contradiction to the globalization process.
