Borders are omnipresent. As invisible lines, they contribute to order in the world and guarantee security for people – in the form of barriers and barbed wire fences, they divide society and establish strongholds of prosperity that are not accessible to everyone. This article shows how borders challenge notions of justice and tracks discourses that seek to evolve the current border regime into a more universal and just form of human coexistence.
