RYP Event — U.S.-Mexico Relations: An Uncertain Future

The United States and Mexico share not only a 2,000-mile-long border, but also a long history and myriad simultaneously compatible and conflicting interests. The last quarter-century was largely characterized by the emergence of a strategic partnership on security, trade, economic integration and overall binational goals. More recently, however, this partnership has been upended by the election of Donald J. Trump as president. At the same time, Mexico will soon conduct an important election that will determine the country's response to the new political environment in the U.S. What is the likely outcome of the Mexican elections, and what will it mean for U.S.-Mexico relations? What is the future of NAFTA? What is the likely solution to the issue of binational migration? Will the U.S. build a wall between the two countries?

At this event, Tony Payan, Ph.D., Françoise and Edward Djerejian Fellow for Mexico Studies and director of the Baker Institute Mexico Center, will discuss these issues as well as the factors that may drive the binational relationship in the coming years.
