4.9 Summary and Final Tasks



In this lesson we introduced the concept of boundaries and borders and their relationship with what you learned about identity in lesson 3. We discussed how borders, boundaries, and identity are impacted by scale and how they can influence conflicts around the globe. Finally, we evaluated the role GIS can play in conflicts, both as a perpetrator and a negotiator for peace.
