Peripheral Vision: Views from the Borderlands – Fall 2021


PERIPHERAL VISION: Views from the Borderlands illuminates how political, security, and socioeconomic 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

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 and highlighting the latest news from the X-Border Local Research Network’s activities.
