It's hard to overstate the interdependence of the United States and Mexico, whether you look at economics, culture, security, or demographics. In recent years the relationship has become even more politicized in the US, with media outlets and political leaders scapegoating our southern border, Mexico, and Mexicans for all sorts of problems, real and imagined. And yet, in a post COVID-19 world, the two countries will need to work together more closely than ever, on public health, on securing North American supply chains, on managing migratory flows, and many other fronts.
Join Future Tense and the Wilson Center's Mexico Institute Thursday, May 7 for less than an hour at 4:00 pm EDT to consider the future of the relationship amidst the pandemic fallout with two of Mexico City's most creative thinkers on US-Mexico ties.
