The U.S. Mexican Relationship- It’s Complicated- Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


  • What is the best approach to the Mexican migration problem?
  • Is the weakening of Mexican Democracy a threat to the U.S.?
  • What economic tools can Biden employ to help influence Mexico to improve its relations with the U.S.?

Earl Anthony Wayne will discuss the important and complicated relationship between Mexico and the United States.  No country relationship touches the daily lives of more Americans than the relationship with our southern neighbor.  Mexico is a vital economic partner as America’s second-largest trading partner and the largest buyer of U.S. exports.  Yet, Mexico and the U.S. also need to manage incredibly challenging problems surrounding migration and cross-border crime, for example.  Getting cooperation right between the two neighbors is a particularly tricky task, but there are no ways around working to make it better — neither of us can move away!

Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne is a Distinguished Diplomat in Residence teaching at American University’s School of International Service.  He is also a Public Policy Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Co-Chair of its Mexico Institute Advisory Board. In addition, he is a Senior Non-Resident Advisor at the Atlantic Council and the Center for Security and International Studies. He serves on the Board of the American Academy of Diplomacy.  Wayne writes, speaks, and consults on a wide range of topics.
