[SOLVED] Democratizing the City

[SOLVED] Democratizing the City

Democratizing the City:
The Cross-Border Urban Laboratory
Final Research Paper
You have now completed your critical response to Temporary Paradise.
As you noticed, this important historical report identified a series of particular
problematics, and then proposed a set of strategies to tackle them, transforming
the report into a vision plan.
Taking this report as an inspiration (meaning, keeping the spirit of its questions
and propositions), we will now embark on developing a mini-research project, to
explore a particular cross-border issue, from which to speculate new strategies
for interdependence between Tijuana and San Diego.
Please keep in mind that your mini-research paper should also be inspired by
many of the conceptual tools I have shared with all of you during weekly lectures.
There are two possible approaches to this final research project that I would like
1. If you have not come up with a particular topic yet, please choose one of the
general topics below.
2. If you know of a particular topic you would like to engage, or you are already
engaging, that it is not mentioned below, please feel free to do so!
-This is the general structure I suggest for your paper (this is common sense):
>Begin by framing and elaborating the main problematics you find in the topic
you chose. What is the problem to be tackled? What are the conditions that
produced the problem?
>Give us some evidence, data, etc., that supports your introduction to the
>Then move into a creative mindset, and propose a speculative strategy, a way
to solve the problem! What are we to do? How can we transcend the problem?
what policies need to change? What constituencies need to be engaged? Who
should participate? In essence, what are the main strategies you propose?
> You can research other projects-initiatives across the world that might support
your ideas.
>Research the appropriate references to support your views.
Note: this paper should be constructed in the spirit of Temporary Paradise,
meaning, it should be about a new vision! About projecting a new paradigm for
cross-border collaboration and synergy, a vision that departs from a critical view
of the present, the problems we must tackle today.
Possible Broad Topics:
The following are very general topics, so please give them specificity through
your research, elaborating on a particular condition, a case study, etc.
-The conflict between natural systems and the border wall
-The politics of water across the border bio-region
