Do Good Fences Make Friendly Neighbor? Inclusion and Exclusion in and on the Borders of Europe

Texts by authors from different parts of the world, having a common topic of border regimes, migrations, asylum, trafficking, friendly neighborhood policies, cultural differences and Islam, excell in connection between research and activism, and represent a result of cooperation between World Learning/SIT Abroad and the Peace Institute. This book is especially useful for those concerned with regimes of inclusion and exclusion.
