My current presentation is on the use of sociological monitoring as one of the means to ensure control of the “global borderlands”. Monitoring of these Zones is a way of introducing sociology into practice. The issue of protecting objects located on the border of states affects not only the interests of these states but also foreigners temporarily staying in their territory. It is an important component of international interactions at the global and local levels. Each country uses its methods of control over the border zones. So for example, I was in the US in a special center near Washington, which controls the entry of various types of transport: aircraft, ships, cars, etc. This requires a good electronic database of information about all those intending to enter the US territory, as well as certain principles (methods) for separating those who enter from the streams and may pose a threat to US citizens, institutions, and foreigners temporarily staying in this territory. The current US President, Trump, has embarked on the path of simpler restrictions on entry into the United States, from certain, primarily Islamic, states. Are these restrictions a necessary and sufficient filter to cut off dangerous personalities, or are other restrictions necessary? I believe that sociologists can contribute to the improvement of the principles of filtering those entering the territory, as well as protecting border zones of many foreign-local interactions. The report is devoted to the study of this important topic based on existing experience in different countries, as well as sociological recommendations for solving this problem, especially in the context of combating terrorism. It appeals to the analytic work before the Foreign-Control and then on the study of its implementation. This new approach to advisory work in the field of the Foreign-Control becomes a tool of assessing new laws.
