Chapter Summary

This chapter provides systematic information in order to analyse and better understand the recent and growing international relations of Mexican sub-state governments. It first argues that the growth in international activities of sub-state governments is generated by the combination of two sets of variables: 1) the growing interdependence and globalization of the system in the international arena; and 2) the democratization, decentralization and structural reform processes in the domestic system. The chapter then sustains that, in strict legal terms, Mexican sub-national units do not have a foreign policy of their own, given the legal limitations that specify that foreign policy is an exclusive faculty of the federal executive. Next, it defends the idea that there is wide variation in the degree of international participation of sub-state governments. Finally the chapter argues that the degree of sub-state diplomacy of Mexican federal units depends on three variables: economic; political; and geographic.

Keywords: international relations; Mexican federal units; sub-state diplomacy
