This detailed report on border management addresses critical aspects of border security and functionality in the Canadian and American context. Dr Geoffrey Hale, in his report to the Canadian International Council, outlines the importance of considering the holistic picture of border movement and the effects of transmigration of organised crime, unregulated migration, and the terror acts of 9/11 - not merely in a state security context but also as a threat to economic virility. We find that the answers to balancing openness with security are quite more complex than previously thought - and that security seeks redefinition if the continent is to move forward with a healthy regional economy.
Dr Geoffrey Hale teaches political science at the University of Lethbridge and was a Fulbright Visiting Chair in Canadian Studies at Duke University in North Carolina. He is the author of several books dealing with Canadian fiscal policy and Canadian border issues.
