(Discussion Group #1) Beyond the Border: U.S.-Mexico Relations

May 24, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

“Beyond the Border: The Value of Bi-National Collaboration”

Guest: Alfonso Navarro-Bernachi

Because the international border falls under federal jurisdiction, decisions are made far from the border in the respective capitals of Washington, D.C. and Mexico City. Yet these decisions not only impact the borderlands but also the rest of America, including Kansas and other midwestern states. In this discussion, Alfonso Navarro-Bernachi, Mexican Consul General in Kansas City, brings a unique perspective to understanding the value of bi-national collaboration. A distinguished member of Mexico’s Foreign Service, Navarro-Bernachi has served in consulates in several border states including California and Arizona and will share his insights on collaboration from firsthand experience.

About Summer 2017 Discussion Groups: For many, the U.S.-Mexico border presents a problem; for others, an economic opportunity. An expert in cross-border economic development, Christina Luhn will lead a summer discussion group series exploring the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico with a focus on border security, immigration and trade.
