Cross-border governance on the U.S.–Mexico border

Institutional challenges and developments in health collaboration

Pamela Lizette Cruz

*RISC Award for Best Paper presented at the 2013 conference of the Association for Borderlands Studies

English abstract: This article examines public policies and development of institutions at the U.S.– Mexico border related to the progression of cross-border health governance. Establishing interlinkages between health and security aspects of the border collaboration, I systematically present a descriptive panorama of the problems inherent to cross-border health governance and analyze institutional perspectives and border typology. As borders continue to change with time, cross-border collaboration continues to be shaped and redefined. In analyzing the challenges facing the border today, what would effective cross-border governance entail? Who are the actors and what are the processes that may facilitate cross-border health governance?

Spanish abstract: Este artículo examina las políticas públicas y el desarrollo de las instituciones en la frontera México-Estados Unidos en relación con la progresión de la gobernanza sanitaria transfronteriza. Estableciendo vínculos entre el sector salud y los aspectos de seguridad de la colaboración transfronteriza, la autora presenta sistemáticamente un panorama descriptivo de los problemas inherentes a la gobernanza sanitaria transfronteriza y analiza las perspectivas institucionales y la tipología de frontera. Como las fronteras continúan cambiando con el tiempo, la colaboración transfronteriza continúa redefiniéndose y tomando forma. En el análisis de los desafíos que enfrenta la frontera hoy, ¿qué implicaría una gobernanza transfronteriza eficaz? ¿Quiénes son los actores y procesos que facilitarían la gobernanza sanitaria transfronteriza?

French abstract: Cet article examine les politiques publiques et les développements institutionnels survenus à la frontière américano-mexicaine dans le domaine de la gouvernance sanitaire transfrontalière. En établissant des liens entre la santé et les aspects sécuritaires de la collaboration transfrontalière, j'entends ainsi dresser un panorama descriptif des problèmes inhérents à la gouvernance sanitaire transfrontalière, tout en analysant les perspectives institutionnelles et la typologie des frontières. Alors que les frontières continuent d'évoluer avec le temps, la collaboration transfrontalière ne cesse continuellement de se façonner et se redéfinir. Au regard des défis actuels de la frontière, quels enjeux impliquent une gouvernance transfrontalière efficace? Qui sont les acteurs et lesquels sont susceptibles de faciliter la gouvernance de la santé transfrontalière?

Local perspectives on confronting water scarcity

The Mexican portion of the Colorado River

Alfonso Andrés Cortez-Lara, José Luís Castro-Ruíz and Vicente Sánchez-Munguía

English abstract: This study examines the social and institutional factors that determine whether local actors in the region take local and binational actions to manage scarce and highly contested water resources, focusing in the Mexican portion of the Colorado River. Based on the common pool resources and institutional approaches, the research project analyzes qualitative data from individual interviews with local key informants as well as official documents. The results reveal: (1) the variety of institutional behaviors, actions, and strategies implemented at the local and binational level; and (2) how complementary perspectives contribute to sustainable water management. The findings of the study contribute to the common pool resources literature by showing the importance of the actors’ collaboration to address water scarcity in a context of rapidly changing conditions.

Spanish abstract: Este estudio examina los factores sociales e institucionales que determinan si los actores locales realizan acciones locales y binacionales de gestión de un recurso hídrico escaso altamente competido en un contexto de variabilidad climática, enfocándose especialmente en la porción mexicana del río Colorado. Usando los enfoques de Recursos de Uso Común e Institucional, se analizaron documentos oficiales y datos de entrevistas individuales con informantes clave. Los resultados revelan: (1) la variedad de comportamientos institucionales, acciones y estrategias implementadas a nivel local y binacional; y (2) las perspectivas complementarias contribuyen al manejo sostenible del agua. Los hallazgos muestran la importancia de la colaboración entre actores para abordar la escasez de agua en un contexto con condiciones físicas y sociales cambiantes.

French abstract: Cette étude examine les facteurs sociaux et institutionnels qui ont une influence sur les stratégies locales et binationales de gestion et d’adaptation en matière hydrique sur la rive mexicaine du fleuve Colorado. Le travail se concentre sur les facteurs qui déterminent les actions des acteurs locaux dans un contexte de variabilité climatique. Fondée sur les approches des ressources communes et l’institutionnalisme, cette recherche analyse les données qualitatives issues d’entretiens individuels auprès d´informants clés ainsi que des documents officiels. Les résultats révèlent 1) la diversité des comportements, des actions et des stratégies institutionnels mis en oeuvre aux niveaux local et binational, et 2) la contribution de perspectives complémentaires à la gestion durable de l’eau. Les résultats contribuent à la littérature sur les ressources communes en soulignant l’importance de la collaboration entre les acteurs face à la pénurie d’eau.
