The Evolution of U.S.-Mexico Military Cooperation

As new—state and non-state—threats loom on the horizon, the US and Mexican militaries will need to rely on deepening their connection and increasing bilateral trust to build a stronger and interdependent defense relationship. For two neighbors that share an annual trade worth in excess of USD 534 billion along a 2,000-mile border, cementing a strong relationship built on trust should be a priority. This event will bring together US and Mexican defense and military officials that will provide their positions on the current level of defense cooperation.
The event will also serve to launch the Wilson Center Mexico Institute’s paper A Bond Worth Strengthening - Understanding the Mexican Military and US-Mexican Military Cooperation, authored by Inigo Guevara Moyano. This paper is meant to provide a deeper understanding of the Mexican military and its contribution to the defense and security of North America. It does so by analyzing the evolution of Mexico’s armed forces, and the past and present cooperation between the Mexican and the US militaries.
