University of Chicago Press

Border fixity has contributed much to international peace and stability in regions such as Europe, North America, and South America. This book discusses the consequences of the border fixity norm for both domestic and international relations. It focuses on territorial pressures and the rise of failed and failing states, arguing that border fixity is a causal factor of these problems. The main objective of this book is to analyze the impact of the border fixity norm on state weakness and how it fosters international conflict.

Keywords:   border fixity, peace, stability, territorial pressures, state weakness, international conflict
