Lecture To Feature Expert On Drug Control

The Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) will resume its popular lecture series this month with a talk about inter-American drug abuse control, focusing on the U.S.-Mexico relationship.

The lecture, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 2 p.m., in Room 4.614 of the Jonsson Building, will be presented by David R. Beall, executive secretary of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) of the Organization of American States.  The event is co-sponsored by UTD's McDermott Library and the Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies.

Under Beall's leadership, CICAD approved a plan of action for the implementation of an anti-drug strategy that included controlling the international movement of firearms, their parts, components and ammunition.

UTD's Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies was created in 1995 to foster greater understanding between the United States and Mexico about issues of interest to both countries. The center strives to enhance the academic relationship between UTD and Mexico via international education, research and public service programs.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will conclude with a question-and-answer session. For more information about the lecture series, please contact Gabriela Carrera at
