Is Geography Destiny? North America on the Eve of the Leaders Summit

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto will host President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the North American Leaders Summit on February 19.

On the eve of the summit, the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and Canada Institute will host a discussion of the key issues facing the region. The discussion will also serve to launch the new Wilson Center report, Is Geography Destiny? A Primer on North American Relations. At a time when nearly all of the main issues facing North America are understood and addressed within the dual-bilateral framework of U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada relations, this report analyzes these challenges and opportunities through a trilateral lens. The panelists will address the Leaders Summit itself, as well as the future of North America, including issues of economic integration, energy developments, security cooperation, and border policies.
