The Institute of the Americas and the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies are pleased to host a Tequila Talk with Shannon O’Neil, Senior Fellow for Latin American Studies at the renowned think-tank Council on Foreign Relations.

In light of the upcoming President Obama’s visit to Mexico in early May, Dr. O’Neil - an expert on U.S. policy towards Mexico and a frequent commentator on major television and radio programs
– will share her prospects in regards to this awaited official visit.

This will be the first time of President Obama in Mexico since President Peña Nieto’s inauguration last December. Key topics in the bilateral agenda, such as immigration policy and border security, will underline the discussions between the two leaders. Thus, Dr. O’Neil’s talk could not take place in a more strategic moment: she will analyze the expected outcomes of this official meeting and share her views on the current status of U.S.-Mexico relations.

In addition, Dr. O’Neill will introduce her latest book: Two Nations Indivisible, which tells the story of the making of modern Mexico, and what it means for the United States. At the end, she will be available for book signing.

This is a must-attend event for scholars, graduate students and general public interested in U.S. policy towards Mexico.

* This event is for 21 and older as we will serve tequila. Please bring your ID.
