Talk To Address U.S.-Mexico Security and Democracy

The Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) will conclude its popular lecture series for this academic year on Monday, April 21, with a discussion about international security issues in Mexico and the United States and the challenge for democracy in both countries.

The talk, which is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in Room 2.402 of Karl Hoblitzelle Hall (HH) on campus, will be presented by Ana Maria Salazar Slack, a former White House Policy Advisor for President Clinton's Special Envoy for the Americas and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for drug enforcement policy and support in the United States and other countries.

Salazar currently is vice president of SynthesisDigital.com.mx, a Web site dedicated to interviewing Mexican policymakers and politicians. She also writes a weekly column about politics and foreign affairs for major Mexican newspapers, teaches national security policy at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de Mexico in Mexico City and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

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 Salazar's talk, please contact Gabriela Carrera at (972) 883-6401.
