Border Walls as Obstacles to Health Care: Women and Health Access in Borderlands

 

Initially defined strictly as a dividing line between two countries, borders now encompass the dividing line and the regions around it. Through the hardening and thickening of borders, the erection of walls and the dual movement of externalization and internalization of borders, borderlands are now being (re)defined. Often represented as a mean to enhance security, border walls are part of a dynamic of increased controls on both sides and toughened immigration laws, which nurture a climate of fear for undocumented migrants and create new obstacles for all populations, legal and undocumented. Individuals have become, in this heightened security context, sites of control. Bodies are being policed and new laws are being enacted, entangling the intersection between immigration laws and social services access laws, such as healthcare. Borderlands have become an environment where legal status influences mobility and where mobility dictates access to health care. This panel seeks to understand how this context impacts women’s daily life in the borderlands. How have border walls and immigration laws (re)shaped women’s mobility? How does legal status inform mobility and healthcare access? Does the hardening of borderlands affect the way they care for others and themselves? What are the impacts on their accessibility to health and social services in borderland regions?

Identities and Security in the Transborder Zone Between Quebec, Canada and the United States

 

In the wake of 9/11, the US-Canada border that had been deemed as the most pacified border in the world, appeared under a new light in security, trade and societal discourses. When the Canadian government announced in 2015 that Canada would welcome almost 25 000 Syrian refugees, the decision was seen as a potential risk in the US, mainly because of this 8891km of common border. With the inauguration of the new administration, NAFTA renegotiations and the influx of migrants at the border, as well as immigration related policy changes, the very meaning of the US-Canada border is changing. And these evolutions of the vision of the border are not without impacts on the local scale. New measures taken under the new administration have had profound impacts on border communities. New challenges arise, in terms of impacts of a tighten security on daily life in the borderlands, negotiation of identities in transborder communities, environmental cooperation, commercial relations… This panel aims at assessing the impact of the new administration on the US/Canada border, identities reshaped in redefined border communities. We are also delving into how local and State-level cooperation transcend the changes made to the border at the national level and the remaining specificities of the Quebec/US border and borderlands.

Borders, Walls and Violence:  Costs and Alternatives to Border Fencing

 

In a globalized world in which interdependence is viewed as a necessity and the norm, border walls appear to be obsolete manifestations of the institution of State. Nevertheless, walls have been spreading steadily since the end of the Cold War. The boom in wall-building after 9/11 actually has its roots, at least attitudinally, in the period preceding the events, for the walls derive not from a specific fear of terrorism but rather from the global insecurity bred by globalization. Paradoxically, in a security-conscious world, globalization has led not to the elimination of borders but rather to the recomposition of territory and the erection of new “ramparts”. The wall has become a solution to the quest for security of the State, the boundaries of which never truly disappeared, a solution sublimated through an increasingly security-centric discourse in the wake of 9/11, and further fueled by post-Arab Spring events. This panel seeks to understand border walls as a global trend in International Relations. As a growing number of walls are being built along international borders and as migrants and inhabitants of those borderlands are experimenting more and more violence, we seek to understand the local perspectives and views on border fences and replace it in a multiscalar perspectives in order to see if there are alternatives to fences and security approaches. How much do they cost (both monetary and socially)? How well do they work? How are security discourses shaping the landscape to build border walls?
