The Wisconsin International Law Journal's 2015 symposium explores how international borders are a front line in current international conflicts, and how current and future international legal regimes will attempt to resolve border conflicts. The symposium brings together scholars from across the globe to discuss border adjudication, border enforcement, and the malleability of borders as they relate to international legal norms, claims of secession, movement across borders, and human considerations in determining borders.
