From Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico to the leaders' of North and South Korea recent historic handshake at the border of their two countries, global politics has recently been defined by demarcation rather than cooperation. The Forum on Geopolitics is pleased to welcome bestselling author and former Sky News Diplomatic Editor Tim Marshall to celebrate the launch of his newest book, Divided: Why We're Living in an Age of Walls. In Divided, Marshall explores the fences and barriers that have been erected in the past decade across the world, and what these barriers mean for global wealth, race, religion, and politics. Dr. Ayse Zarakol of the Department of Politics and International Studies will provide comment.
