New Paths in Mexico-US Relations: An Assessment from The Perspective of Regional Cooperation

01.04.2024

Mexico, a strategic actor in international relations, emerges as a decisive country in shaping political, economic, and social dynamics both regional and global levels. Geographically located in the north of Central America, Mexico draws attention with its rich history and diverse cultural heritage, while also playing a significant role economically and politically. As a neighbor to the United States, Mexico has complex relations with the U.S. in areas such as trade, migration, and security. Additionally, the 3,200-kilometer border between Mexico and the U.S. is seen as a significant security concern for the U.S.

Mexico also emerges as an important country in Latin America economically. Mexico, one of the largest economies in the region, is one of the trade centers of Latin America with its dynamic workforce and strategic trade agreements. Particularly through agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Mexico is seen as a significant part of regional trade and economic integration. Additionally, Mexico is a member of important international organizations such as the G20 and OECD.

With its regional leadership role, Mexico has a significant impact on various security, development, and environmental sustainability issues in Latin America. Therefore, Mexico’s role in Latin America is of vital importance for the overall stability and development of the region.

Mexico faces various significant issues on the international stage, such as migration, violence, and drug trafficking. Particularly due to its proximity to the United States border, migration takes center stage in the country’s policy agenda, while waves of migration from Central America also influence Mexico’s migration policies. Violence and security issues are directly related to the activities of drug cartels and organized crime groups. This situation leads to conflicts, violent incidents, and high crime rates. Drug trafficking poses serious security threats both domestically and internationally, exacerbating narcotic addiction and health problems.

The relationship between Mexico and the United States emerges as a significant focal point in international relations. These relations are influenced by various factors such as geographical proximity, economic integration, migration, security, and trade. In addition to common issues such as illegal migration and drug trafficking across the border, the economic relationships between the two countries, including trade and investment, are also part of the equation.

The regional leadership roles of Mexico and the United States and the power balance in North America play a significant role both within the continent and in the international arena. The stability and effectiveness of the relationship between the two countries are critical for regional stability and the health of the global economy. Their geographical proximity and economic, political, and cultural ties constantly influence their relationship. However, these historically complex relations have sometimes led to tensions and conflicts. Issues such as migration, trade, security, and border security form the fundamental dynamics of the relationship between Mexico and the United States. While both countries often find themselves in direct opposition due to policies and decisions that directly affect each other’s internal affairs, they also tend to collaborate based on shared interests. Therefore, the relationship between Mexico and the United States is a significant subject of study in the field of international relations.

This analysis will address the importance of Mexico in the context of Latin America and the United States. Border issues between Mexico and the United States will be discussed, and the impact of regional cooperation on Mexico will be examined. Finally, solutions will be proposed for economic problems and the issue of migration. This analysis serves as a foundation for understanding Mexico’s role in international relations and the complexity of Mexico-US relations for those seeking insight into the matter.
