CALDERON VAZQUEZ, Francisco José. Boundaries in Time and Space: Spanish "Minor Sovereign Territories". Frontera norte [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.51, pp.113-136. ISSN 2594-0260.

This paper studies the evolution of the border functionality of the Moroccan-Spanish border, one of the most complicated, thought-provoking boundaries in today's world, being the only European frontier in Africa. Among the Spanish-Moroccan border areas, the focal point of this analysis are the Spanish "Minor Sovereign Territories", a set of small border islands that perfectly embody the fluctuations of history in the Mediterranean basin and their reflection in the life and functions of borderland territories and their peoples.

Keywords : borders; border functionality; North/South boundaries; mediterranean conflicts; moroccan-spanish border.
