Institute Professor Peter Andreas is among the experts explaining how the US-Canada border, once a point of pride as the world's longest undefended border, has become a case of bureaucratization run amok, in an article in the Toronto Global and Mail.
Separately, Andreas addressed the creation and growth of the US Department of Homeland Security Department in the Bangor Daily News. "The creation of it was the largest reorganization of the federal government in half a century, so that in and of itself is quite remarkable. But the creation of DHS also changed the very way we talk — the once obscure term ‘homeland security’ is now part of our everyday discourse.”
