How to Get Over a Border
Georgetown University. School of Foreign Service
Safety and survival cannot be guaranteed in getting over borders. The caveat is dependent on person and place: depending on the citizenship and country of residence of an actor in question, some of the techniques elaborated in this brief essay may be more or less attractive to my reader. Luckily, reading offers a safe method of border crossing through looking into the lives of others. Borders tell different stories—not only about the nation or region, but also about lives that are ravaged. It is the latter—the ravaged—that are so often trampled over in the rush to ensure national and regional security.
