The Canada-US Border in Changing Times: History, Myths and Prospects

This panel will discuss how Canada-US border policy has changed in response to recent events, including NAFTA, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and the current COVID-19 pandemic. The four panelists will examine at least three main facets:

- the available evidence, informed by previous and current border policies that have affected each country, and in particular border regions;
- the myths surrounding the world's "longest undefended border", a metaphor used to mute a huge imbalance between the two countries; and
- the prospects for reopening the border, a matter of sovereignty and politics for each country.

Presented by:

Cheryl Camillo, MHA Director and Assistant Professor, JSGS
Bruno Dupeyron, Professor, JSGS
John Maggoire, Senior Advisor to the Governor, New York State Executive Chamber
Laurie Trautman, Director, Border Policy Research Institute, Western Washington University
