Abstract

This article deals with the general fate of borders and territories in the current discussions of globalization and the future of liberal tolerance in the international sphere. It delves into the historical constitution of national borders and their meaning, and how they helped establish ‘territorial governance’. It examines the role of domestic toleration in this constitution and investigates how toleration might be recast in an international context of growing antagonisms and increased complexity.
