NEUTRAL FRONTIERS

Speculative Writing

What would happen in a fictive world where policing is abolished? In my capstone project I decided to explore the idea of removing border policing in Switzerland. The writing is set in 2050, ten years after the removal of border policing and is presented as an archive or research documents and testimonies compiled by the fiction "Institute of Swiss Studies Bern".

As a Swiss resident who grew up there for 15 years, I was interested in wrestling with the ideas of national identity from a national and foresign perspective. I was also excited to imagine what kind of labor markets would emerge from the removal of border policing.
