Free Trade in the Age of Trump


This workshop will provide an opportunity to critically evaluate the distribution of the pressures that globalization and free trade have placed on particular groups or industries in North America and analyze the ways in which U.S. policymakers can approach future structural adjustments to limit and more equitably distribute these pressures across society.

It is organized in collaboration with the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California (UABC) alongside a day-long symposium to be held in Tijuana on March 31 titled “La Economia de La Frontera Ante la Nueva Realidad.”
