A Critical Juncture: Public Opinion and U.S.-Mexico Relations

The Wilson Center and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs are pleased to invite you to an event on public opinion on U.S.-Mexico relations.

A Critical Juncture: Public Opinion in U.S.-Mexico Relations

Since the 1980s, the cooperation between the U.S. and Mexican governments has improved tremendously. However, despite the deepening governmental, economic, and societal ties that have occurred over the last two to three decades, the way in which the U.S. and Mexican publics view one another has experienced several ups and downs.
