"U.S.-Cuba Ties: A Thaw, Revisited"
Jan. 17, 2018 | Register
On Dec. 17, 2014, the U.S. announced that it would end its policy of hostility and look to engage Cuba. With the change in U.S. administrations in 2016, this optimism turned to pessimism as President Trump threatened to roll back the Obama administration rapprochement. Ultimately, the Trump administration's policies reinstate restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba and U.S. business dealings with the military-run conglomerate. These changes take place against a backdrop of a nation preparing for a successor to President Raul Castro in 2018. This panel discussion will look at the recent developments and new constraints for the future relationship between the two countries.

"Mexico’s 2018 Presidential Elections: Questions to be Answered"
Jan. 18, 2018 | Register
Given the recent changes in the U.S.-Mexico binational relationship under President Trump, many new uncertainties have emerged. CGT Pacific Leadership Fellow and Harvard University Professor Jorge Dominguez will discuss the extraordinary number of offices on next year’s ballot and how the coming elections will be unique due to a number of unprecedented factors: independent candidates, Mexicans voting abroad and reelection.
