U.S.–Mexico Relations in Uncertain Times

Professor David Shirk

Few countries send us more goods, capital, or people than Mexico, and no other country in the world is as intimately tied to the United States as Mexico. Roughly 80 percent of Mexico’s exports come to the U.S., and Mexico buys more U.S. goods than any country except Canada. With recent criminal violence and economic turmoil in Mexico, the growing discord in U.S.–Mexico relations could not come at a worse time. This talk will examine the current and future prospects of U.S.–Mexico relations.

Instructor: David Shirk is Associate Professor and Director of the Master of Arts in International Relations program at the University of San Diego. He received his PhD in Political Science from UCSD and teaches courses on comparative politics, international political economy, and international security. He is also the director of Justice in Mexico, a research and policy initiative on criminal justice and the rule of law in Mexico.
