The CUCSH was founded in 1990. It is the first formally constituted study
center in the country which postulates the Pacific Rim as its particular
object of study. The relevance of this enterprise lies in the growing
influence that the phenomenon of the Pacific Rim has on the internal
development of the countries that form it.
The Journal México y la Cuenca del Pacífico is created by the CUCSH
to contribute to greater understanding on the development and operation of
the Asian Pacific countries. It also aims to meet the growing demand for
information about this topic. The purpose of the journal is to provide
timely information about the political, economic, cultural and social life,
on Mexico and the group of countries in the Pacific Rim with which Mexico
interacts. The group consists of five industrialized countries: United
States, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and Canada; of nine emerging economies
in Asia: Korea, China, Philippines, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia,
Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan and one of Latin America: Chile.
This select group of countries forms the basis of analysis of México y la
Cuenca del Pacífico. The theme of the journal is considered from a
transdisciplinary approach and from the perspective of the changing global
trends in all aspects.
