In order to adapt to the new context created by globalization, borders have got a dynamic sense, losing some of their traditional functions and acquiring new roles, which transform them from barriers to fluid and permeable lines. Thus, they delimit a space permanently reconstructed by the interdependencies and interactions of its members, contributing to the shaping and development of new regions in international relations. Technology and international and bilateral agreements are "the engines" that generated and allowed the integration of economies and markets, and redefined the economic frontiers.

Keywords: border, globalization, regionalization, international relations theory.
