Talking Borders Audio Archive / Centre for international borders research

This is a collection of 20 audio recordings of specialists commenting on border issues around the world. These recordings were produced by S L James for the Centre for International Borders Research, Queen’s University Belfast between 2005-2008.

The Centre for International Borders Research (CIBR) is an interdisciplinary centre for empirical, comparative and theoretical study of international borders and border regions. Based at Queen’s University Belfast, it builds on Northern Ireland’s advantages for border study and the research interests of a core group of academic staff. It has links with the Centre for Spatial Territorial Analysis and Research (C-STAR) at the School of Geography, and complements and co-operates with the Centre for Cross Border Studies which promotes policy-related research on cross border co-operation on the island of Ireland from its base in Armagh. CIBR is also in the process of forging links with other research institutions internationally, most recently with the Association of Borderlands Studies (ABS) with whom it maintains an extensive bibliography on borders.
