ARISPE Y ACEVEDO, Baltazar. The Geographic and Demographic Challenges To the Regional Institutionalization Of the Texas Lower Rio Grande Valley. Norteamérica [online]. 2009, vol.4, n.2, pp.37-69. ISSN 2448-7228.

The purpose of this article is to examine the institutionalization of a region of the United States of America: the Texas Lower Rio Grande Valley. It will use and build on theories of regional institutionalization, geography, and demography by Paasi, Harvey, Gilbert, and other theorists. This research asks how history, geography, and demography challenge the present and future regional institutionalization of the Texas Lower Rio Grande Valley. To answer this question, recent case studies on institutionalization and regional development in Canadian and U.S.-Mexican regions will be used to explain phenomena.

Keywords : institutionalization; geography; demography; Texas; Mexico.
