This panel looks at both how states act and are seen beyond their official borders, as well as the production and enforcement of these borders themselves. The approaches used here are diverse and are drawn from across the spectrum of IR and security studies. Each paper develops our understanding of the behaviour of states and political communities, as well as problematising these behaviours or exploring how these behaviours are interpreted by others.
