This work offers a complex, current and heterogeneous look at the borders in Mexico and Brazil. The introduction and the eleven chapters were prepared by Mexican, Brazilian and Argentine specialists dedicated to the study of Latin American borders, who contribute to capturing contemporary border realities, transformation processes in their national borders, as well as dimensions of tension and interaction with countries and regions. neighbors.
The content of this book is divided into three sections: 1) The borders that unite and separate us; 2) Mexico and its border regions; and 3) Brazil and its border regions. In each section, issues are investigated around the dynamics of bordering, securitization and change processes in these territories, transformations linked to cross-border flows and mobilities, development perspectives, economic practices, security issues and violence, as well as symbolic exchanges in the borders in these two countries.
Based on the content, it is possible to show points of relationship in terms of state approaches to border administration and control, but also distances -such as the impact of the migratory phenomenon, the policies implemented for development and/or innovation- as well as the practices.
