North American Futures
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.
This session on March 17th was titled “Beyond NAFTA to Genuine Economic Interdependence: Are North American Fates Inter-Connected?” The panellists were David Emerson (corporate director, public policy advisor and senior adviser for CAI Managers), Vinod Aggarwal (University of California, Berkely), Maria Isabel Studer Nogúez (Tecnológico de Monterrey), and Robert Pastor American University). The session was moderated by Maxwell Cameron (director of the Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions at the University of British Columbia).
