Joining Together, Standing Apart: National Identities after NAFTA
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was not conceived of by its negotiators nor described to domestic constituencies as an effort at political and social integration. Nonetheless, North American economic integration combined with expanded trade regulation does internationalize an increasing number of political and social issues that previously were addressed through purely domestic legal and social processes. The speakers at this conference recognize and explore this connection by examining the interaction between the genesis, passage and future course of NAFTA and national politics, cultures and identities.
