CAMPOS DELGADO, Amalia E.  and  ODGERS ORTIZ, Olga. Crossing the Border: Mobility as a Resource in the Tijuana/San Diego and Tecún Umán/Tapachula Regions. Estud. front [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.26, pp.9-32. ISSN 2395-9134.

This paper suggests that transborder mobility is crucial to the way individuals relate to space and the meanings that they construct about it. Based on ethnographic work carried out in the Tijuana/San Diego and Tecún Umán/Tapachula border regions, an analysis is conducted of the relationship between the border region and the spatial mobility of its inhabitants. We conclude that there are at least four possible ways of constructing mobility in border contexts.

Keywords : border; border region; mobility; Tijuana; Tecún Umán.
