No, borders are a manifestation and representation of national identity. Fundamentally borders define one from another. A border states that I am inside the border, others are outside of the border. How can we move towards international equality when we still put such emphasis on nationalism? Then again how could we practically spread a global equality without completely deconstructing nation states??? And what would decconstruction of nation states bring??? No borders are not helpful in promoting equality.

Language defines who you are in terms of where you come from and shows you clear identity

Not if you take the recent example of the Panama Papers and see how people cross their money over a border to hide it and keep it untaxed.

Borders are important- physically or otherwise. But this should not impact equality- racial, economic, gender, sexual etc…etc..

No, I believe borders are man-made, artificial notions used to divide us from the one thing we all share and have in common- the world! EU free movement is a good way to exemplify this!

No. Borders are man made and are used to often to divide us rather than unite us!

They will go off the facts! If they know you’re English, they are very likely to ask you if you like tea. It’s just showing an interest of your culture

People may make them feel secure, sometimes having someone in the same situation as you, makes you feel as though you have an ally, and you are double the power.It is no necessarily borders that can make you feel secure, but also people.

For the kids of the street, they have no borders. They live within a country, but these borders of our homes, and our home towns don’t exist for them as they simply don’t have one. They don’t have a parameter where they can call that theirs, hence them feeling insecure because they don’t feel at home anywhere.

Japan and the UK are both islands, so we see the borders as getting out of the country, perhaps in this case, the sea is almost our form of security, as people need to pass the sea in order to reach our countries. In France and Germany, then it is all one huge mass of land and people have said that this part of the land is French, and this part is Germany. Having constructed these borders, then we will feel secure within them, as these borders construct our home

It isn’t just about borders of a country, there are borders within even certain areas. Some people state they don’t feel safe in certain parts of a town. People create these imaginary borders of security.

This may be seen as a very ethnocentric view though, what about those who don’t feel they need the help from other countries as they want to maybe create solutions within their own proximities, to then make people feel more secure.

Borders may hinder collaboration, as every country needs help every now and again, and borders act as a barrier to come and give help to those who need it.

– Border s of a country can make people feel less secure, i.e. International aid. If a country has civil unrest, or are not allies with other certain countries, then it can make it harder for other countries to come in and help those countries, simply because the borders of that country are deemed as dangerous.

Borders of a country aren’t enough to make you feel secure; it generally comes from within, such as the infrastructure of a country.
