Addressing Violence and Impunity in Mexico: The Path Forward with the Lopez Obrador Administration 

A talk by Maureen Meyer, Director for Mexico and Migrant Rights, Washington Office on Latin America

For over a decade, Mexico has been impacted by increasing violence and corruption. 2018 was Mexico’s most violent year on record, multiple corruption scandals have impacted Mexico’s political class, and human rights violations have continued unabated. The new President of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, came to office on December 1, 2018 promising to root out corruption and bring peace and security to the country.  What do we know about his policies so far?  Will they bring about the structural transformations needed to address Mexico’s problems of violence, corruption, and impunity?  How can the United States support Mexico in these efforts?  Please join us for a conversation with Maureen Meyer, Director for Mexico and Migrant Rights at the Washington Office on Latin America, to discuss these pressing issues for Mexico.
