1The German town that is building a huge stone wall to separate locals from refugees
Located in the Munich suburb of Neuperlach Sud, the stone wall is aimed at dividing the town's families from 160 unaccompanied child refugees who are set to move into a nearby shelter that is currently under construction. The nearly completed wall now stands taller than the Berlin Wall, and while locals are aware of this, most of them say that they don't care how it looks, as long as it keeps the refugees away. (Engineers claim that it had to be high to act an effective sound barrier.) (Source)

4The Moroccan wall built out of sand
For over three decades, the wall has been dividing Sahrawi families and sealing the occupied areas from the outside world with telling social, economic, political, legal, cultural, and environmental effects on the population on either side. It also violates the human rights of the Sahrawi people and is a major impediment to the realization of their internationally recognized right to self-determination and independence.
Unlike the Israeli wall in the Palestinian occupied territories, the Moroccan berm has received little attention in the media, although it has been around for more than three decades. (Source)
5The border fence that separates Morocco from Spain
Massive intrusions of sub-Saharan people via Melilla had become a Spanish issue and, to some extent, an EU problem. This prompted the Spanish government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to build a third fence next to the two deteriorated existing barriers in 20015, to completely seal the border outside of the regular checkpoints. This third razor wire fence cost Spain €33 million to construct. It consists of 11 km (6.8 mi) of parallel 3 meter (9 ft 10 in) high walls topped with barbed wire, with regular watch posts and a road running between them to accommodate either police patrols or ambulances. Underground cables connect spotlights, noise and movement sensors, and video cameras to a central control booth. Its height has since been doubled as immigrants were climbing the previous fences by use of homemade steps. Other devices to slow them down were also added. (Source)

7Sweden medieval defensive wall
Built in two stages during the 13th and 14th centuries, approximately 3.44 km (2.14 mi) of its original 3.6 km (2.2 mi) still stands. Of the 29 large and 22 smaller towers, 27 large and nine small remain. Some houses that predate the wall were incorporated into it during one of the two phases of construction. During the 18th century, fortifications were added to it in several places, and some of the towers were rebuilt to accommodate cannons. (Source)

The peace lines range in length from a few hundred yards to over three miles (5 km). They are made of iron, brick, and/or steel and are up to 25 feet (7.6 m) high. Some have gates (and are staffed by police) that allow passage during daylight, but they are closed at night.
In May 2013, the Northern Ireland Executive committed to the removal of all peace lines by mutual consent by 2023. (Source)
