Summary: Mexico is the U.S.’s top-trade partner and one of its most important political and strategic allies. The history of both nations is inherently intertwined, bearing a unique combination of characteristics unseen in other neighboring countries. As of today, the U.S. and Mexico share one of the most unequal land borders in the world, and the busiest one, allowing 300 million pedestrian crossings per year. Our goal is to discover this fascinating relationship in all its complexities in five policy areas: trade, migration, security, energy, and public health. By doing it, we will identify the full economic and social potential that a partnership between the two countries has to improve the lives of the American and Mexican people.
