Walls: the regulatory influence of partition on territories and nations
Walls have been used for centuries as a form of protection against threats, real or perceived. They have been built to defend against thefts, invasions and threats to cultural identity.
Today more than 60 walls or barriers are standing, or are being planned by States to prevent entry into their territory. This is despite the perception that we are living in a time where borders are losing their relevance in the face of the necessities of a globalised world.
