Canada’s Cultural Diplomacy toward Mexico during the NAFTA Eralocked

Canada’s Cultural Diplomacy toward Mexico during the NAFTA Eralocked

  • Graciela Martínez-ZalceGraciela Martínez-ZalceUniversidad Nacional Autónoma de México

Summary

Canadian cultural diplomacy has been inconsistent in recent decades. In the specific case of Mexico, the visibility of Canada is the result of the sum of public and private initiatives within independent and commercial circuits, as well as academic collaborations. In certain periods of the last few decades of Canadian history, it is possible to recognize policies aimed at projecting a specific image of Canada, which is constantly modified by precise political and economic conditions. In the twenty-five years of the North American Free Trade Agreement, three moments of cultural diplomacy toward Mexico can be recognized: a first intense period of creation of binational ties, a time of restrictions that affected strategic collaboration programs, and a renaissance characterized by interest in rethinking and systematizing the strategies of cultural exchange.
