Summary/Abstract: Whether it is territorial or sociopolitical, the border is a sociological factor that gains its significance and function from the people it divides. In other words, it functions as the main instrument for all types of categorizations (social, political, ideological etc.). There is no doubt that demarcating has been an act since the early history of humankind. Individuals, groups, societies or political entities marked borders in almost all periods in order to determine themselves. However, the determination of borders based on soil is completely a modern fact and the rigid and sharp lines are also unique to the modern nation-state.
