Peripheral Vision: Views from the Borderlands sheds light on how political, security and socio-economic developments affect the people living in contested borderlands and, conversely, how border dynamics shape change and transition at the national level.

In this issue we cover:

– Tunisia’s Border Regions: Between Security and Social Unrest

– Less Violence, More Tensions: Trends of Identity-Based Conflict in Subnational and Border Areas Across Asia

– Trade, Taxes and Tensions in the Somali Borderlands

Produced by The Asia Foundation, Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center, the Rift Valley Institute, and their local partners—it draws on recent research and analysis produced by the project to interpret current events from the perspective of border regions. PERIPHERAL VISION is published twice a year, as a timely update of dynamics on the ground.
