Le réveil des frontières intérieures

Abstract : The article analyses the reawakening of state’s internal borders as so many political levers. It first questions the too simplistic opposition between imperial borders and the borders of the nation-state by showing that the construction of the latter has been characterised by multiple joints. It then asks whether one should be nationalist to fight for secession or refuse to be so to accept to live together in a multinational state. Finally, looking between past and future, it asks why internal borders, which are relics of the past, are being acclaimed today in order to rebuild a grassroots democracy.
