The Migration Machine
As a million migrants and refugees entered Europe in 2015, states feared the situation was spinning out of control. Some worried that violent extremists were using refugee crowds as cover and put up hundreds of miles of anti-immigrant fencing. (Full story)

For months, the fences did nothing to reduce total arrivals. Instead, they changed the routes people took, forcing them to try new borders which were in turn fenced off.

Now, Europe is trying to send new arrivals back to Turkey. And since the last barrier closed on a route through Greece, migrants and refugees are looking for other ways in.

The barriers are not just dividing countries. They are also splitting societies, Europe’s political leaders, and, critics say, its stated humanitarian ideals.

Borderline, Frontiers of Peace - Valerio Vincenzo
Since the signature of the Schengen Agreements in 1985, the borders of most of the European continent have been erased little by little from the landscapes and people’s imaginations. These Agreements are a giant leap in the progressive unification of Europe and the emergence of a European conscience.

november 2013 by sspela - Marine Policy - Using conservation as a tool to resolve conflict: Establishing the Piran–Savudrija international Marine Peace Park
Border disputes between neighbouring States are a regular occurrence and have the potential to undermine relations at national, regional, local and even individual level. In this instance the conflict over Piran Bay in the Northern Adriatic Sea has led to conflict between the neighbouring States of Croatia and Slovenia./.../Analysis of the political context of the dispute and recognition of the biological importance of the region has led to opportunity to combine politics and biological conservation to establish an International Marine Peace Park (IMPP) as a potential mitigation measure to help resolve the conflict.

"Za podeželjski prostor je značilen intenziven preplet dejavnosti in rab, ki ustvarja prostor velike biotske raznovrstnosti, kvalitete bivanja in možnosti za razvoj. Kmetijstvo se prepleta z gozdarstvom, ohranjanjem narave in poselitvijo.. Pogosto je obravnavano kot onesnaževalec okolja. To velja za intenzivno kmetijstvo, ki se vedno bolj tudi specializira in uvaja monokulture. Vedno močnejše pa je spoznanje, da to ni smiselen razvoj, saj povečuje tako tveganja v pridelavi, kot pri trženju. Trajnostno naravnano kmetijstvo upošteva ohranjanje biotske raznovrstnosti, zaradi katere se vzpostavi bolj stabilen ekosistem. Potreba po uporabi fitofarmacevtskih sredstev se tako lahko zmanjša."
