From the reading notes of Michel Bauwens, 2006:

The essay is a warning against a too facile 'network discourse', which sees the world as flux and locality as disappearing. In fact , our world is just as much one of closures (such as the Mediterranean, seen as protecting a 'Fortress Europe'), with heavily regulated 'tunnels' which do not communicate with each other. Thus multiple frontiers - though they do not necessarily correspond to the old nation-states - are just as constitutive of the current phase of modernity.
