2023 State of the West Symposium
Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research
366 Galvez Street Stanford, CA 94305 United States
By invitation only
Stanford University’s State of the West Symposium annually takes stock of the economic and fiscal health of North America’s Western region. We gather academic researchers, business and financial leaders, elected officials, agency heads, and other stakeholders to address the well-being of the millions of Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans who dwell on the sunset side of the hundredth meridian.
The 2023 symposium will mark the 10th joint program between the Bill Lane Center for the American West and SIEPR. It will focus on relations among the continent’s three sovereign nations, with special attention to the continuing crisis along the US-Mexican border – all of which runs through the four “frontline” western states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
