Abstract: Research on the Myanmar-Thailand border usually centres on the insurgencies inside Myanmar (Burma), while the studies of migration across it are preoccupied with the plight of Burmese refugees or migrant workers. Based on life history interviews and ethnography, this paper scrutinises the Phlong Karen transborder flows between the mid-1980s and early 2010s in order to grasp the governmentality of the border, migration across it and its shifts over time.
