People situated in different places disagree about the border and have difficulties situating it clearly. The Möbius ribbon destabilizes the idea of an objective border between inside and outside, friend and foe, law and exception (the liberal view of the border of a cylinder). Within the strip, zones of indetermination appear; zones of conflagration (of violence and of meanings) emerge, and they are not no-man’s land: on the contrary, they are populated by individuals excluded from both the inside and the outside, from both friendship and enmity, from both law and exception.

The third part of the book concerns rethinking borderscapes. It opens with James Sidaway’s reading of the semiotics of borders. Sidaway looks at how the Portuguese–Spanish border has been affected by an imaginary geography of EU-centered connectedness. For Sidaway, borders and what they denote are structures or fields that require reading to have meaning. Borders do not in themselves, in their physical location on maps, convey meaning. They are read from particular vantage points. Such readings are more than discursive; they have material effects.
