New Worlds: Crisis, Aspiration and The Clipperton Project

The Clipperton Project is an international initiative based in Mexico, focusing on expeditions to remote territories that have experienced a complicated and controversial history. In Crisis, Aspiration and The Clipperton Project Director Jon Bonfiglio traces the beginnings of the project in a global context of enhanced international rhetoric about collaborative needs and intent, but which often continues to evidence the reverse. With particular reference to Mexico in 2012, just prior to a national election and having experienced some of the most difficult years in its history, the paper will seek to place both the project and in particular the country in a broader historical, social and political context, and to examine its current predicament outside of the eye of the media.
