The Future of U.S.-Mexico Relations: Foresight to 2040

Overview

This project will critically examine the U.S.-Mexico relationship, applying strategic foresight methods to identify the variables that will likely impact the future health of the binational relationship, project the possible outcomes of the relationship under the current political climate, and examine the broader challenges that the U.S. and Mexico will face in the coming decades. The project will also propose optimal scenarios and policy recommendations to share with policymakers in the United States and Mexico.
