IBRU: Centre for Borders Research

Through research, consultancy and training, IBRU seeks to facilitate enhanced understanding of border areas, contribute to the peaceful resolution of boundary disputes, and engage with broader geographic questions concerning the changing nature of sovereignty, territory, citizenship, and the political organisation of space.

Since its founding as the International Boundaries Research Unit in 1989, IBRU has been the world’s leading research centre on international boundary making and dispute resolution, creating impact through the services it provides to the public and private sectors. Today, IBRU brings together work in international boundary law with the geographic study of borders and bordering in the 21st century.

IBRU is part of the Geography Department at Durham University.

**Due to the global pandemic of the virus COVID-19, IBRU have taken the decision to postpone all face to face workshops in the forseeable future for the health and safety of all staff and colleagues who may have been travelling to thse events.

We hope to announce new dates for these workshops to take place in the future.**
