Excerpt

“Ideas, people, commodities, and capital are flowing across borders like never before, creating new possibilities for cultural change. Political borders are, in this process, being moved and even transcended, their meaning redefined. These are cultural and political acts. On the other hand, these processes have been challenged by construction of new boundaries and barriers, as people try to defend existing conceptions of border culture, identity and belonging.”
