Mexico and the NAFTA Negotiations

Event video and key quotes

"[The NAFTA negotiations] come with an enormous amount of anxiety – anxiety about whether or not this can be a successful negotiation, anxiety about whether the U.S. executive branch will stick with it, and anxiety about questions of timing and political change." - Duncan Wood

Inside Kim Jong-un's Scramble to Kill Off His Family

Commentary by Jean H. Lee

If any theory guides the selection of North Korea's dictators, it is survival of the fittest – or the most vicious. While Kim Jong-un was escalating his country's nuclear threat, the paranoid leader was also eliminating anyone in his family who might challenge his rule.

Pence's Southern Challenge

Commentary by Cynthia J. Arnson

"Ultimately, the success of Pence's trip, and of Trump policy in Latin America, will not be measured in sound bites about Venezuela or the common struggle against transnational crime. It will be seen in the U.S. ability to accommodate and even extend the region's embrace of multilateral cooperation, open markets, free trade, democracy and human rights as the core values upon which a sustainable future is based." - Cynthia J. Arnson
