In the last ten years, border control in South Africa has attempted to respond to a change from a security focus to one of the facilitation of trade and freer movement of people. In response to these changes and the need for more government departments to become more proactive in this regard, tensions in terms of collective efficiency and effectiveness of border control have become more acute. This paper provides a brief history of the attempts of South African border control over the last decade to find an optimal structure of co-operative governance. Finally, we map three alternative models of how to structure border control in the future.
