The issue of border control and human rights has become one of the main political agendas while addressing global issues and has raised concern amongst a great number of scholars on an international level. This has the consequence of making the issue a rather disputed in nature as different actors in different positions address it from different perspectives and assign different meanings to it. This survey discusses the international theories which have tackled the issue of border from a human rights perspective. It argues that border policies are largely debatable between various international theories that seek to defend their argument in favor of or against closed border control. Within this sphere, in terms of hypothesis, the main question remains which type of borders between states is most adaptable to global circumstances and at the same time can preserve state sovereignty. One hypothesis would be the softer the border the more sovereignty and human rights could be preserved.
