PODESTA ARZUBIAGA, Juan. Regiones fronterizas y flujos culturales: La peruanidad en una región chilena. Universum [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.1, pp. 123-137. ISSN 0718-2376. doi: 10.4067/S0718-23762011000100008.
This article discusses the cultural dynamics that shape the border area in Northern Chile (Arica) and Southern Peru (Tacna). The main argument is the emergence of a growing influence of Peruvian culture in the city of Arica, which we label as ¨Peruvinization of a Chilean Region¨. The factors that influence this process have to do with the regional impact of globalization, the prolonged economic crisis in Arica, the accelerated economic growth of Southern Peru, the outdating of the classical geopolitical approach, and the influence of new educational programs.
