Abstract

This paper introduces a new process or movement-oriented or “kinopolitical” methodology for studying borders. In this paper I would like to argue against two common assumptions about how borders work: Borders are static and borders keep people out. My argument in this paper takes the form of three interlocking theses about borders: 1) Borders are in motion, 2) Their main function is not to stop movement but to circulate it; 3) Borders are tools of primitive accumulation. These three theses are then followed by a brief concrete example to illustrate them.
