PARTNERS

The Cross-Border Initiative is a project of the UCSD Center on Global Justice, an Organized Research Unit (ORU) on the UCSD campus, which promotes interdisciplinary, community-engaged research on poverty in the developing world, with a particular emphasis on regional urban development in San Diego-Tijuana. Complex social problems are not constrained to disciplines or sectors; nor can their solutions be.
