"Changing border landscapes in East Asia: The cases of Kinmen (Taiwan) and West Sea 5 Islands (Korea)"
This lecture explores the changing border landscapes in Kinmen island (Taiwan) and West Sea 5 Islands (Korea). On the basis of a relational view to territory and border, in particular, it suggests that both border regions cannot be solely explained on the basis of the logics of security and territoriality; instead, they need to be seen in terms of complex interactions between the logics of mobility and territoriality, and as zones of compromise between geo-political fear and geo-economic hope. At the same time, the differences between both border regions will be discussed. The border region in Kinmen can be seen as a channel of cross-border exchange and flows because it is more oriented toward the logics of mobility and economies. On the contrary, the border regions in the West Sea 5 Islands (Korea) can be characterized as a place of conflict and tensions because they are more centered on the logics of territory and security.
