Human rights along the U.S.-Mexico border : gendered violence and insecurity( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much political oratory has been given to safeguarding America's boundary with Mexico, but policies that militarize the border and criminalize immigrants have overshadowed the region's widespread violence against women, the increase in crossing deaths, and lingering poverty that spurs people to set out on dangerous northward treks. This book addresses those concerns by focusing on gender-based violence, security, and human rights from perspective of women who live with both violence and poverty. From Pacific to Gulf of Mexico, scholars from both sides of the 2,000-mile border reflect expertise in disciplines ranging from international relations to criminal justice, conveying a more complex picture of the region than that presented in other studies. Initial chapters offer an overview of routine sexual assaults on women migrants, harassment of Central American immigrants by authorities and residents, corruption and counterfeiting along the border, and near-death experiences of border crossers. More chapters connect analysis with solutions in the form of institutional change, social movement activism, policy reform, and spread of international norms that respect human rights and good governance. These chapters show how all facets of border situation including globalization, NAFTA, economic inequality, organized crime, political corruption, and rampant patriarchy promote gendered violence and expressions of hyper-masculinity. They also show that U.S. immigration policy exacerbates problems of border violence. By focusing on women's everyday experiences in order to understand human security issues, these contributions offer broad-based alternative approaches and solutions that address everyday violence and inattention to public safety, inequalities, poverty, and human rights--Publisher's description

Cities and citizenship at the U.S.-Mexico border : the Paso del Norte metropolitan region( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the center of the 2,000 mile U.S.-Mexico border, a sprawling transnational urban space has mushroomed into a metropolitan region with over two million people whose livelihoods depend on global manufacturing, cross-border trade, and border control jobs. Our volume advances knowledge on urban space, gender, education, security, and work, focusing on Ciudad Jur̀ez, the export-processing (maquiladora) manufacturing capital of the Americas and the infamous site of femicide and outlier murder rates connected with arms and drug trafficking. Given global economic trends, this transnational urban region is a likely paradigmatic future for other world regions"--Provided by publisher

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors provide a theoretical introduction to the intrinsic nature of borders, as well as an overview of current trends in borderlands studies, to serve as a framework for the contributors' case studies. A concluding section examines the implications of transcending traditional borders
Violence and activism at the border : gender, fear, and everyday life in Ciudad Juárez by Kathleen A Staudt( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1993 and 2003, more than 370 girls and women were murdered and their often-mutilated bodies dumped outside Ciudad Jur̀ez in Chihuahua, Mexico. The murders have continued at a rate of approximately thirty per year, yet law enforcement officials have made no breakthroughs in finding the perpetrator(s). Drawing on in-depth surveys, workshops, and interviews of Jur̀ez women and border activists, Violence and Activism at the Border provides crucial links between these disturbing crimes and a broader history of violence against women in Mexico. In addition, the ways in which local feminist activists used the Jur̀ez murders to create international publicity and expose police impunity provides a unique case study of social movements in the borderlands, especially as statistics reveal that the rates of femicide in Jur̀ez are actually similar to other regions of Mexico. Also examining how non-governmental organizations have responded in the face of Mexican law enforcement's "normalization" of domestic violence, Staudt's study is a landmark development in the realm of global human rights

Here is an insightful volume on the integration of women in the modernization process of developing countries, with research studies on women and development in Guatemala, Tanzania, Indonesia, and several other countries. Drawing from theory and practice, authorities examine how development in any kind of economy marginalizes women, illustrate the existence of a feminist awareness among impoverished rural women, demonstrate the importance of understanding the policy and program implementation institutions within which any transition toward more women-sensitive change is to occur, and suggest the kind of research that would be useful and credible to policymakers. -- Publisher description

Social justice in the U.S.-Mexico border region by Mark W Lusk( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S.-Mexico Border Region is among the poorest geographical areas in the United States. The region has been long characterized by dual development, poor infrastructure, weak schools, health disparities and low-wage employment. More recently, the region has been affected by the violence associated with a drug and crime war in Mexico. The premise of this book is that the U.S.-Mexico Border Region is subject to systematic oppression and that the so-called social pathologies that we see in the region are by-products of social and economic injustice in the form of labor exploitation, environmental racism, immigration militarism, institutional sexism and discrimination, health inequities, a political economy based on low-wage labor, and the globalization of labor and capital. The chapters address a variety of examples of injustice in the areas of environment, health disparity, migration unemployment, citizenship, women and gender violence, mental health, and drug violence. The book proposes a pathway to development
