SMU launched a research program for policy-based analysis of the Texas-Mexico relationship during Gov. Greg Abbott’s visit to Mexico.
“SMU and our home city of Dallas are uniquely situated for this kind of study,” said SMU President Gerald Turner. “We have the academic resources to bring clarity to issues that are frequently viewed as singular challenges rather than pieces of a puzzle connected by laws, economic factors and social patterns that may go back for generations.”
The program will focus on policy discussion on the economic, political, and social relationships between Mexico and Texas.
