1. Peet, C. (author). The border institute of justice & commemoration.

Degree: 2016, Delft University of Technology

The border region of the United States & Mexico is characterized by, among others, significant economic and cultural contradictions. This applies especially for the twin city of El Paso – Juárez. This twin city used to be the epicentre of the Mexican drug war. Juárez was known in 2010 as the most violent city in the world while El Paso on the other hand was ranked as one of the safest in the United States. This antithesis increased the dissociated relation of the two cities. Meanwhile, many victims of drug war related violence and family of victims on the Mexican side are left behind without a place to commemorate their deceased loved ones. Also, justice for the victims of those commited crimes is lacking due to the absence of prosecution by the Mexican government. The current hostile border condition, together with the lack of justice and a place commemorate for the inhabitants of Juarez, have been used as a conceptual starting point for this project. This graduation project tackles these problems by implementing a memorial & research center for drug war related victims on the border of the two cities. The building combines it function as a memorial and research center with making a physical connection between the two cities. It is therefore a multifunctional, binational accelerant for both cities/countries meant to improve the binational relationship and well-being of the citizens on both sides of the border.

2. Li, Y.W. (author). Border design.

Degree: 2016, Delft University of Technology

The 3145km long US-Mexican border is one of the longest and most intense borderlines in the world. The border twin cities, El Paso and Juarez, are unlike any of the US or Mexican cities. The two cities grow interdependently, asymmetrically and share lots of contrast. Particularly, crossing the border to shop is common in the region. Both countries have very rich market culture and the border communities could benefit a bigger market in terms of variety, quality and prices. Because of their contrast, cross-border activities could be daily and intense. However, the ports of entries are limited and they are the bottlenecks where influx of people flow getting congested. In average, people spent 1 to 2 hour every day to queue before entering the border checkpoints. Every year, every border crossers spent in total 480 hours waiting in line at the border checkpoints. This creates huge losses on time and money that the border crossers could have spent alternatively for enriching their lives. Therefore, the project proposes to broaden the neutral zone for a hybrid building that allows border crossers to double use their time, enjoying life on the “LINE”. A third program-a co-operative US-Mexican market would be introduced. It would provide a shared public space where commercial, social and cultural exchanges take place. In the end, the entire building design aims to create an integrated alternative experience of crossing the border.

3. Morales, Stephanie Ruíz. Support Group at the Border: A Pilot Social Support Program for the Well-Being of Mexican Immigrant Women Residing Near the Southern U.S.-Mexico Border Region .

Degree: 2017, University of Arizona

Mexican immigrant women are a vulnerable population group in the U.S., and face challenges as a result of the nation’s anti-immigrant landscape. To help Mexican immigrant women cope with these realities, scholars have proposed the implementation of social support interventions. Yet only two studies have executed social support interventions for immigrant women. Those tailored specifically for Mexican immigrant women are nonexistent. To address this gap, this Master's thesis piloted the first social support intervention for Mexican immigrant women in the U.S. The purpose was to assess the impact of a social support intervention on the perceived social support for Mexican immigrant women. The study (1) surveyed Mexican immigrant women's current perceived social support, (2) investigated whether engaging in a social support intervention could improve Mexican immigrant women's perceived social support, and (3) explored (through the use of a foto novela) the elements (e.g., persons, places) Mexican immigrant women consider to be most important sources of social support in their lives. Surveys were administered pre- and post-intervention assessing perceived social support using three Likert-type scales. At pre-intervention, perceived social support was moderately high. A difference in perceived social support at post-intervention was observed, but without significance. This work adds to the small body of literature on social support interventions for Mexican immigrant women, and has important implications for future interventions and research. This work also documents the use of foto novelas – an innovative tool to engage with (and give a voice to) Mexican immigrant women. Future work should consider the use of foto novelas, as these amplify new understandings of social support, and capture (through the use of photographs) Mexican immigrant women’s own interpretation of social support.
