The Trump Administration made a trade deal with the United
States’ closest neighbors a priority in 2017, with the goal of replacing NAFTA
with a new agreement that was “fair” to the U.S. Efforts to negotiate a
new treaty created tensions in US relations with Mexico and Canada. This
panel will explore both the efforts to reach NAFTA 2.0, its significance as a
trade agreement, and the potential political and security consequences of the
volatility in US-Canada-Mexico relations over the last two years.
