ENRIQUEZ ACOSTA, Jesús Ángel. Ciudad de muros: Socialización y tipología de las urbanizaciones cerradas en Tijuana. Frontera norte [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.38, pp.127-156. ISSN 2594-0260.

In the last years the dominating urbanization way implemented in Tijuana and in border cities is the gated communities. The city tends to enclose itself arguing unsafety beyond the protective walls and fences. But, at the same time, it is a social distinction strategy. This work is about a spatial segregation process for the socioeconomic condition in Tijuana, the socialization levels reached inside the neighborhoods, and the urban scenario like simulation.

Keywords : gated communities; spatial segregation; fear; socialization; Tijuana.
