The author develops the theme of the boundaries of Jerusalem (both in the historic city that in its metropolitan area) showing how they are numerous, not overlapping, informal, and not recognized by rigid and concrete agreements, and therefore these boundaries are weak, flexible and traversable. The issue of boundaries is determined on the basis of the objectives and results of demography, policies, planning actions, the construction of housing units followed by the Israeli government and Palestinian authorities, organization of services and security. This is perceived in different parts of the greater Jerusalem (historical cities and villages in its periphery). The author's conclusion is still that there are many boundaries that are ambivalent, and therefore mobile and unofficial, and that the ethnic-national border is the most powerful in shaping these soft and traversable boundaries.
