Despite talk about globalization and international community, new borders, fences, and walls are erected all over the world—around states, occupied territories, and gated communities, between public and private spaces. Some of these borders are visible, others are drawn by means of language tests and biometric methods. Borders and cultural codes spell the difference between life and death, “identity” and “alienness,” belonging and exclusion. They determine the right of people to move from one place to another or even to be in any particular place at all.
