Views from the Borderlands sheds light on how political, security and socio-economic developments affect the people living in contested borderlands and, reversely, how border dynamics shape change and transition at the national level. In this first issue, we cover:
- Borderland economies and the recent political transitions in Sudan and South Sudan;
- The importance of Afghanistan’s border regions in forming a sustainable peace;
- Spatial and economic disparities along Algeria’s eastern border; and
- Competition between Saudi Arabia and Oman in Yemen’s al Mahra governorate.
