This special section explores cross-border dynamics for ethnic minorities on the margins of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). Our aim is to make a significant contribution to the understanding of the GMS and regionalization more broadly. We are among the first researchers allowed to do fieldwork in borderlands that governments until recently deemed ‘sensitive’ and out-of-bounds. Our contributions bring to light the variability of conditions for minorities, complicating understandings of ‘peripheries’ and ‘centres’, as well as the notion of a singular ‘region’.
