Border zones are areas along geo-political borders that have specific restrictions, especially in terms of access, movement and ownership. In opposition to the general understanding of border zones as areas of militarization and control, we use the term to reflect into a broader concept: the border zone as area of exception, opportunity and encounters. The border between the United States and Mexico represents the sharpest divide in average income of any place on earth. In areas like the San Diego (USA) – Tijuana (MX) border, hosting the most frequently crossed international border in the world, the difference could not be more extreme. Yet an enriching hybrid culture, cross border initiatives and Bi-national NGOs are offering alternative ways (yet limited) for readying and engaging in the development of a trans-border Urbanism. The symposium aims to learn from the US/MX experience and make a link to the actual EU debate on Issues about Migration, Citizenship, Borders, Global Justice, Provision of Housing, Property rights, Participation.
