ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the peace implications of the current trend of building walls for security purposes in 2007. Particular focus is given to the advocacy of walls along the U.S.-Mexico border, and in countries such as Iraq and Spain where ethno-national conflict is prevalent. Other reasons for wall building, such as immigration, terrorism, and the drug trade, are discussed. It is the author's view that security cannot come from protecting boundaries but by confronting insecurity.
