Mads Pankow is right when he states in our current issue that “boundaries have always had a bad reputation”. Nevertheless, we need them, “if not just to be able to overstep them”. In form 280 we explore the different functions of borders, their advantages and disadvantages as well as thepossibility of doing away with them.

Boundaries

Text: Stephan Ott

Translation: Nicholas Grindell

In a speech in a beer tent in Bavaria in August 2018, Horst Seehofer, Germany’s Federal Minister of the Interior, said he was glad about every foreigner who committed a criminal offense, because it would make it easier to deport that person.
