Peripheral Vision: Views from the Borderlands – Fall 2019
PERIPHERAL VISION: 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.
Published by the X-Border Local Research Network—a partnership between The Asia Foundation, the 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, while also highlighting the latest news from the X-Border Local Research Network’s activities.
