Conclusions: Tracking Turbulence and Post-Westphalian Opportunities

  • Imtiaz Hussain


A detailed study of seven episodes impacting the “southern” U.S. border unequivocally concludes that the state (a) is not the only viable actor, (b) complicates the governance problem through a lack of flexibility, and (c) cannot create solutions alone. Equally emphatically, it finds the state has not been washed up or dried out, but that the ever-growing problems have simply exceeded the state’s hitherto sacrosanct governance capacities. In short, if there is a crisis, as we believe there is in policy dispensation, then its evolutionary origin should not be ignored.
