The International Border Research Group is an organisation of border enthusiasts, experts and academics who organise and support research into international borders, tripoints, border markers and other border related features. The group arranges international visits to international borders annually and members share the outcomes of their individual or smaller group visits. The group acts as a resource pool in supporting members in their expeditions. Members of the group have visited borders and tripoints in most continents. Initial members came mainly from Scandinavia, however the membership is now increasingly global.

The next trip being to the divided island of Märket in July. If you are interested in joining the IRBG or learning more please leave a comment below.
