Presenter: Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly, PhD, School of Public Administration
Our 21st century borders won’t be territorial boundary lines but instead will be ruled by international agreements and virtual technology; yet walls will still rise. In this lecture, Dr. Brunet-Jailly will discuss why and how this is happening and what such changes mean, not only for states, private sector actors and corporations, but also for migrants. He will also explain how this will affect borderlands and in particular how it will impact communities and people in border regions like ours.
