Lines and Flows: The Beginning and End of Borders


WHEN September 24, 2014
6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

The nature of borders in today's global context has radically changed. Borders must be viewed as global “flows” of goods and people as much as “lines” on a map marking the transition from one sovereignty to another. This perspective fundamentally alters our understanding of the relationship between security and economic competitiveness.

This lecture examines the dramatic implications this has had for American, Middle Eastern, and international policies and practices of border management as well as on our enforcement approach to transnational organized criminals, including terrorists who populate the underworld of globalization.

Simultaneous Arabic interpretation will be provided.
