BENEDETTI, Alejandro. The Argentina-Uruguay Border Space: A Geographical Description. Frontera norte [online]. 2015, vol.27, n.53, pp.35-61. ISSN 2594-0260.

This paper is part of a more extensive research project being carried out at the Institute of Geography of the University of Buenos Aires, whose purposes are 1) to describe and analyze the South American border spaces and 2) to understand what role they play in national territory-building. A geographical description of the Argentina-Uruguay border space will be presented, using a model that considers six components: territorial differentiation, frontierization, subnational territory, supranational territory, border places, and mobility. The conclusions will show the main spatial continuities and discontinuities identified there.

Keywords : border space; delimitation; frontierization; Argentina; Uruguay.
