Abstract

The article deals with the territorial boundaries, the geopolitical stability and the cartographic illustration. This essay shows, the seductiveness of artificial boundaries stems from the simplicity of cartographic illustration and a naïve faith in drawing a boundary now and sorting out its details later. Special the colonial powers imposed artificial borders with notoriously tragic outcomes in Africa and Middle East. - (IfL)
