What are the Patterns of Border Conflicts? Crash Course Geography #37

Dec 13, 2021

Today, we’re going to take a closer look at borders and the stories they tell.

When we look at a map, the shapes we’re seeing can seem so permanent, but a map is just a snapshot of the Earth at a particular time, and by looking a countries shape (and how it has changed across time) we can learn so much about how power moves and the ebb and flow of conflict.

We’ll talk about the different types of borders, and power dynamics at play in Armenia and Azerbaijan and even look to the oceans as we explore conflict in the South China Sea.
