Scope

Estudios Fronterizos (REF) is an open access digital peer-reviewed journal. Its purpose is to provide a space to debate the knowledge generated about borders in general, international borders, regions and border and cross-border phenomena around the world. The journal publishes an annual volume, structured in two sections, a general article section and a thematic section. Given the multidisciplinary nature of border studies, the documents that are published involve disciplinary or interdisciplinary approaches from sociology, anthropology, history, geography, economics, demography, political science and international relations. The REF also presents a platform for various theoretical and methodological approaches. The following thematic areas are among the subject matter of the journal: a) theoretical approaches and methodological proposals for border studies; b) mobility and migration; c) demography and population policies; d) development, economic integration, industry, employment, trade and tourism; e) historical construction and transformation of border regions; f) sociocultural processes, daily life and border experiences; g) binational and cross-border cooperation, governance and paradiplomacy; h) public policies and border security; i) border cities, metropolization, regional development, infrastructure, and urbanization process; j) environmental aspects and sustainability of the border regions; and k) border spaces and territories.
