Research and Outreach
The Trans-Border Institute actively seeks to promote improved dialogue, collaboration, and cultural understanding, regarding border issues, among policy makers, academics, and regional stakeholders.

We partner with human rights groups, researchers, and other peacebuilders on the topics of:
Information and best practices are published through the institute's resources, professional forums and other events.
The institute and its work are valuable resources for countries and communities with border issues, as well as students and the community at large. We welcome students and the community to use the institute as a resource for research and practice.
