Amb. Paul Webster Hare, Senior Lecturer at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed for a recent article examining the foreign policy of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Amb. Hare was interviewed for a September 3, 2018 article in Forbes entitled “EPN: End of cycle.“

From the (translated) text of the article:
“We have to recognize that there has been a boom in the Pacific countries, and Mexico is one of them.I think Peña Nieto and Videgaray belong to a younger generation that is aware that the country’s global ties go beyond its region, “says the professor of international relations at Boston University and former diplomat Paul Hare.

For that reason, Professor Hare considers that the outgoing government has failed in its public diplomacy [JB emphasis], that is, foreign communication policy.

“The image of Mexico is clouded by the war against the narco, Ayotzinapa, and corruption. But there are also positive things: they are having a peaceful government transition, they are a young country and strongly committed to climate change, with the Paris Agreement.They should rethink the message they send about themselves abroad, “says Hare.
Amb. Hare teaches classes at Boston University on Diplomatic Practice, Arms Control, Intercultural Communication and on Cuba in Transition. His novel, “Moncada – A Cuban Story”, set in modern Cuba, was published in May 2010. His book “Making Diplomacy Work; Intelligent Innovation for the Modern World.’ was published in early 2015.
