Project Location: 
Mexico
Project Goals: 

This grant will support CSIS to provide foreign policy makers and civil society organizations within the U.S. with comprehensive analysis of political developments in Mexico leading up to that nation's 2012 presidential election. They will provide focused, concise and impartial analysis of the Mexican political scene with a view to explaining how current and future developments might impact economic governance and political stability as well as central issues in Mexico's bilateral relationship with the United States, including immigration, security, and trade. By producing targeted research papers and convening regular meetings and a major conference in Washington, D.C., CSIS and the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de Mexico (its partner in Mexico and another recent Tinker grantee) intend to contribute to more effective and cooperative bilateral policy between the U.S. and Mexico.
