April 13: Felipe Calderón’s First 100 days in office

President Felipe Calderón’s First 100 Days in Office: Trends and Directions

Friday, April 13, 2007
The University of Texas
School of Architecture, GOL 3.120
8:30AM-4:00PM

This conference is designed to bring together scholars, political analysts, and politicians from Mexico and the U.S. to analyze the change of administration in Mexico in 2006, and to make an initial assessment of what the first “semester” of President Calderon’s government tells us about the current and likely future directions in two key arenas of policy making and political change: (1) political reform, and (2) the strategy to improve public security. These two arenas, along with employment creation and poverty alleviation, form the central policy platforms of the new administration. The conference is open to the public and will offer a capstone to two graduate and undergraduate courses that examine Mexico’s democratic transition and emerging political culture. It will be Webcast live or streamed after the event.
