21st Century U.S.-Mexico Project
Mexico and the United States: The Politics of Partnership
The goal of this project is to provide an up-to-date assessment of key issues in the U.S.-Mexican relationship, identify points of convergence and divergence in respective national interests, and analyze likely consequences of potential policy approaches. The project took intellectual shape at a scholarly conference attended by more than twenty participants in July 2009 at UC San Diego, and the authors have been refining, revising, and winnowing their chapters ever since.
The project is co-sponsored by USMEX along with the Mexico Institute of the Woodrow Wilson Center (Washington DC), El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (Tijuana), and El Colegio de México (Mexico City).
