Summary: Mexico is one of the U.S.’s most important political, economic, and strategic allies. The history of both nations is inherently intertwined, and thus bears a unique combination of characteristics unseen in the rest of the world.  This course will explore Mexico’s idiosyncratic political identity and the distinctive ways in which the U.S. has shaped it. We will explore critical debates between the two countries such as immigration policy, transnational crime, and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Our goal is to discover the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico, in all its complexities, debunking cartoonish stereotypes.
