Homero Campa Butron on “Tres Episodios en Una Relación Tri-Lateral”

August 25, 2011 // 12:00pm2:00pm
Mexico Institute
The absence of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States has made Mexico a frequent intermediary when controversies arise between the two nations. At the same time, Mexico’s perceived closeness to the United States has, on occasion, unsettled the country’s historically warm relations with Havana, possibly compromising its position as an effective negotiator. Mexico, Cuba, and the United States have a “triangular” relationship, with Mexico frequently playing a fulcrum role that places it in the middle of important Cuba-U.S. issues, especially on migration, said Homero Campa Butrón, Public Policy Scholar In-Residence at the Woodrow Wilson Center.
