The Philosophical and Political Dimensions of NAFTA: examining 20 years of free trade
Mexico City - April 24 & 25, 2014
Keynote Address by Enrique Dussel
Invited talks by Trish Glazebrook and Jules Simon
The implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on January 1, 1994 marked the beginning of an economic, political, and social transformation in Mexico, and to lesser degrees in the United States and Canada. Now that twenty years have passed, we can examine the achievements and failures of the treaty. This conference brings together multiple perspectives to advance an understanding of the impacts of NAFTA on the signatory countries.
- Rights of Indigenous people
- Environmental impacts, biodiversity and land ethics
- Justice and Labor
- Violence and human rights
- Social and economic balance
- Social movements and protest
- Regional integration
- Immigration policy
- Quality of democracy
