    Morgan quoted in Vox article on Brexit negotiations

    Brexit negotiations have reached a "critical stage," according to the UK government, but what that all means for the prospect of a Brexit deal is still unclear. Deal or no deal, it’s unlikely that Brexit ends this month. Given the short timeline, the UK and EU will likely have additional arrangements and details to work out after the transition period ends. "I think this is the forever Brexit," says Glyn Morgan, associate professor of political science. "Because it’s not as if you can get out and ignore your trading partner."

    McCormick comments on release of Mexican Gen. Cienfuegos in WSJ

    "The Mexican attorney general may follow through on the pretense of investigating Cienfuegos, but nothing will come of it because he is untouchable," said Gladys McCormick, associate professor of history and Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations. She was quoted in the Wall Street Journal article, "Mexico’s President Pushed Hard for Release of General Arrested in U.S."


    Lovely talks to Agweek about Biden's approach on trade issues

    "We know to expect, clearly from his history, that President-elect Biden will work more closely with Western allies and use international institutions to promote new global initiatives," says Professor Mary Lovely. "This is, of course, realizing that his first-year focus is going to have to be on the domestic agenda, in particular getting the COVID-19 outbreak under control and reviving the U.S. economy," she says.

    McCormick quoted in Al Jazeera article on release of Gen. Cienfuegos

    "At the end of the day, arresting Cienfuegos jeopardized future collaboration between the two militaries because it meant that no one on the Mexican side was safe from possible prosecution, even after helping the Americans," Gladys McCormick, Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations, tells Al Jazeera. "All in all, freeing Cienfuegos without any charges or penalties showcases that his arrest was a complete debacle for both the DEA and DOJ [Department of Justice]," she says.
