Topic: Understanding U.S. Foreign Policy in the Trump Era: Strategies from the US-Mexico Relationship
8th July 2019 (Monday) • 3.00 pm • ASEM Room, Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya
This talk will analyze U.S. Foreign Policy in the Trump administration. From the perspective of the U.S.-Mexico bilateral relationship, it will provide policy recommendations on how to contain U.S. hegemony and negotiate with the United States in a complicated national and international scenario. The strategies and recommendations presented can be easily replicated by other countries (like Malaysia) in their relations with the United States or other great Powers.
