Cultures of Border Control
University of Chicago Press

This chapter explains the potential of a cultural evolutionary model beyond Europe, concentrating on the North American case. Moreover, the challenges to the Westphalian model of border control in the latter part of the twentieth century are reported. It then covers the post-9/11 emergence of the Washington culture of border control, its pursuit, and its (still unfinished) selection. The set of assumptions about borders and their management that were elaborated in North America after 9/11 represented the foundations of the emerging culture of border control that have since guided policy makers in the region. The United States clearly placed the tone of the arguments used to pursue the new culture of border control in North America. Relations within North America's border control policy community and with the community's international partners have been characterized by recurrent diplomatic crises.
