This is the concluding chapter to an edited collection 'Rethinking Border Control for a Globalizing World' which is based on a thought experiment in which a ‘preferred future’ of more relaxed borders is imagined. The book provides a new point of departure for thinking critically and creatively about international borders and the perceived need to defend them. This chapter summarises contributions to the book which analyse prospets for peace at the border across a range of ‘border domains’ including law, citizenship, governance, morality, security, economy, culture and civil society, and sets out some broad principles that might underpin a progressive politics dedicated to moving beyond mere critique of the harm and inequity of present-day border control practices.
