boundaries and enemies

Nations are imagined political communities . . . , which need boundaries, and enemies. Law is integral to the

construction and maintenance of these boundaries, and the identification of enemies. . . . This part of the

fiction [that imagines nations as communities] typically masks various forms of inequality, exclusion and

exploitation.

-Nan Seuffert, Jurisprudence of National Identity: Kaleidoscopes of Imperialism and

Globalisation from Aotearoa New Zealand
