The series provides a forum to examine and discuss the effects and implications of the groundbreaking trade agreement, ten years after its implementation. The first lecture in the series was given by Mr. Carlos Salinas de Gortari, former president of Mexico and one of the principal architects of NAFTA. Subsequent lectures will be given by John Coatsworth, professor of History at Harvard University, and Armando Bartra of Mexico’s Instituto Maya.
