These Images of Borders Between Countries Say A Lot About Their Relationships With Another

These Images of Borders Between Countries Say A Lot About Their Relationships With Another | Geography | Scoop.it

Quentin Sylvester's curator insight, May 27, 2015 12:26 AM

The drawing and demarcating of borders is very symbolic of the relations between the two nations - take the Netherlands and Belgium, who share a complex border through villages and towns that is only marked by cobblestones, as the EU grants free access through both, and relations are good. Nations like India and Bangladesh, however, share complex borders with restricted to no access, making it difficult for persons of either country to move around these areas - showing their strained relations.
