On Thursday, October 20, the Strauss Center welcomes Dr. Cecilia Farfán Mendez, Head of Security Research Programs at the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at UC San Diego, for a talk on “Baseball Diplomacy and the State of U.S.-Mexico Cooperation.” This talk is part of our Brumley Speaker Series.

In this talk, Dr. Farfán will discuss how, amidst over 100,000 overdose deaths in the U.S., with 35,000 annual homicides and more than 100,000 missing people in Mexico, bilateral security cooperation between the U.S. and Mexico could not be more pressing, yet continues to be one of the most complicated areas of the relationship between these two neighbors. She will contemplate whether, almost one year after the announcement of the Bicentennial Framework for Security, Public Health and Safe Communities, the two nations are on track to resolving these important security challenges.

This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served. For more information, contact Brittany Horton at
