The ethics of territorial borders : drawing lines in the shifting sand.

Williams, J. (2006) 'The ethics of territorial borders : drawing lines in the shifting sand.', Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.


The Ethics of Territorial Borders develops a distinctive line of argument, drawing on political theory and geography as well as international relations. It argues that although borders have played a role in ethical discussions about war, about intervention and about identity in international politics, these treat them as possessing derivative significance. Instead, this book critiques such an approach to argue for the ethical significance of borders themselves, pointing to their role in human diversity and the enduring appeal of territorial division.
