Public Record - North American Futures – March 16, 2012 (Part 2 of 5)


Diplomats, scholars, practitioners and media gathered in Vancouver from March 16 to 17 to discuss Canadian, American and Mexican perspectives on the future of North America. This is the second conference on North American Futures jointly organized by the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the University of California, Berkeley. The event builds on the first symposium, which was held March 2010 in Berkeley, California.

In the second panel on March 16th, participants discussed the upcoming 2012 U.S. presidential election and the future of North America. The panellists were Paul Quirk (Phil Lind Chair in U.S. Politics and Representation at the University of British Columbia), Lisa Garcia Bedolla (associate professor, Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley), Denise Dresser (Department of Political Science at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México) and Darry Sragow (managing partner at SNR Denton's Los Angeles office). The session was moderated by Richard Johnston, Canada Research Chair in Public Opinion, Elections and Representation at the University of British Columbia.
