I would like to share this article from the Annual Review of Anthropology.  I found it rich in sources and helpful for thinking through key areas of the topic.  My own research began with an extension of the idea of the borderzone to refugee camps.  Governed by trans-state organizations like UNHCR and UNRWA, yet subject to 'interventions' by the state through policing, for example, refugee camps seem to function as ambiguous spaces similar to borderzones like the US/Mexican frontera.

Thank you for your contribution Michael.
As far as I understand, there is a huge literature on this specific border.
So it provides many examples which are useful to make comparisons.
