About

THE MEXICO CONFERENCE

presented by students at Harvard


 

A student-run conference by students at Harvard

Mexico is experiencing one of its most consequential periods since it became a democracy: structural reforms passed under the current administration have yet to bring the full benefits that could be reached; the globalist project on which Mexico has heavily depended to develop over the past decades has come under scrutiny; corruption, inequality and crime have undermined the foundations of the prevailing political and social order; and new technologies and innovation have disrupted the way people live and how businesses operate. As a result, significantly different visions of Mexico’s future have emerged, and next year’s election appear likely to play a decisive role in shaping the road ahead

HOSTS

The Conference is a student-led effort coordinated by the Harvard University Mexican Association of Students (HUMAS) and the Mexican Caucus (MC) at HKS. The conference is being organized with the institutional support of Harvard-affiliated organizations such as the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) and the Fundación Harvard en México (FHM). The conference will benefit from the advice and guidance of Ricardo Hausmann, director of Harvard's Center for International Development (CID) and professor of the practice of economic development at HKS.
