Journal of Borderlands Cover

The Association for Borderlands Studies (ABS) is the leading international scholarly association dedicated exclusively to the systematic interchange of ideas and information relating to international border areas. Founded in 1976 with the original emphasis on the study of the United States-Mexico borderlands region, the Association has grown steadily. It now encompasses an interdisciplinary membership of scholars at more than one hundred academic, governmental institutions, and NGOs representing the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe.

The ABS maintains relations with fraternal institutions and associations in the Americas and Europe. The Association's annual meeting provides a forum for a wide range of topics on border regions around the world. The ABS also sponsors or co-sponsors other meetings on borderland topics.
