TAYLOR, Lawrence D.. NGO Transborder Organizations: San Diego-Tijuana and Vancouver-Seattle Regions. Frontera norte [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.37, pp.35-57. ISSN 2594-0260.

The article compares the character and role of non-governmental transborder organizations (NGO) in two specific binational corridor regions: San Diego-Tijuana and Vancouver-Seattle. In analyzing the principal organizations involved in transborder issues in each region, various differences and similarities in terms of their respective structures, interests, and goals become apparent. The article argues that the essentially different nature of the two border regions and the manner in which they have evolved over time have strongly influenced efforts to develop cross-border links in each case. The article also considers the impact of the events of 9/11 on the work of these institutions, as well as their goals of facilitating border-crossing and promoting regional integration.

Keywords : transborder organizations; non-governmental organizations (NGOs); San Diego-Tijuana; Vancouver-Seattle; Cascadia.
