Mexico is unique in that, by virtue of its location and its linguistic/cultural heritage, it belongs to both North America and Latin America.  Bridging this gap between North and Latin America poses challenges, particularly in view of the natural tensions which at times divide the two regions.  

Mexico identifies with both its European-descended North American partners, and with the countries of the South that started life as European colonies.  Mexico has more in common with its Latin American counterparts historically, politically, economically, socially, and culturally; yet, Mexico is much more dependent on the US and Canada for its livelihood.  In this section, we will examine Mexican affinities with Latin America.
