Boundary news archive
Welcome to IBRU's searchable archive of international boundary news, which contains over 10,000 boundary-related reports from a wide range of news sources around the world. Most reports are from the period when the Boundary & Security Bulletin was published (1991 to 2001) but additional reports have been added from 2006 onwards.
To perform a search, simply enter keywords and/or phrases (each separated by a space) in the box below. Phrases consist of several words, enclosed in double quotes - to be consider a match, all words in the phrase must match, exactly as written. Keywords/phrases can be the names of countries, places or people, activities (eg smuggling, migration) - anything you like.
If you enter a single keyword/phrase, the search will return all records containing that word/phrase. If you enter two or more keywords/phrases, the search will return all records which contain any of those words/phrases. If you precede a word/phrase with a plus sign, that word/phrase must be present for a match.
If you wish to restrict your search to a specific boundary, check the 'Search Boundary Field only' box before submitting your search.
