was launched as the website of the noborder network in 2000. the site was used to publish information about the activities and campaigns of the noborder network and to bundle information on migration related events, developments and actions in europe. the noborder network has been inactive since 2004. other networks and movements have picked up the activities of the network but the noborder network as such does not exist anymore. therefor this website cannot claim to be the website of the noborder network anymore. it continues to be maintained as a repository of information on migration related events, developments and actions in europe and beyond, but it should not be read as speaking for a particular group or network anymore.

This web site looks into global issues that affect everyone and aims to show how most issues are inter-related.
Over 4000 links to external articles, web sites reports and analysis are used to provide credence to the arguments made on this web site. The issue categories range from trade, poverty and globalization, to human rights, geopolitics and the environment.
Some of these issues may be misrepresented for whatever reason such as politics, profit motives, to oppress dissent, and so on. Some of these issues may not be receiving enough -- or any -- mainstream media attention and therefore there is a lack of enough open and public debate, while other concerns seem to be getting a biased attention only. However, I hope you will see that all these issues are closely related, affecting and being affected by one another.
