RAMOS ROJAS, Diego Noel. The Triple Frontier: A Conceptual Proposal to Explain the Dynamics of the Border Region Between Mexico and Guatemala. Inter.c.a.mbio [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.2, pp.49-78. ISSN 1659-4940.

The purpose of this article is to explain the cross-border region between Mexico and Guatemala by deconstructing the concept of border and proposing an epistemological scheme in which different analytical categories and dimensions converge for its study. It is explained that the state-centric paradigm limits openness to dialogue with other ways of imagining border regions and human mobilities. In this sense, the viewpoints, currents and approaches that have studied the border between Mexico and Guatemala as a heterogeneous concept were retaken, in order to propose in this text that the studied cross-border context is constantly reconfigured in nuances, contradictions and ambiguities.
