The Borders research group is focused on border governance with research themes focused on movement across international borders. This includes the securitization of borders, cross-border labour mobility, gendered borders, mobile, imagined, and constructed borders, and sovereignty, territory, and borders.

The goals of this group are two-fold: 1) to advance interdisciplinary understandings of migration laws, processes, and outcomes 2) and to build collaborative networks that enable comparison across disciplines and perspectives.
