Peripheral Vision: Views from the Borderlands – Spring 2022


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:

  • The Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis And Responses In Cox’s Bazar: Five Years On
  • In The Wake Of The Military Coup, Sudan’s Rebel Groups Leverage Support For Political Power
  • Saudi Arabia’s Split-Image Approach To Salafism

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—the joint project draws on recent research and analysis to interpret current events from the perspective of border regions. PERIPHERAL VISION is published twice yearly as a timely update of dynamics on the ground, highlighting the latest news from the X-Border Local Research Network’s activities.
