The State of Citizen Security in Mexico

The Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars hosted on January 16, 2014 a workshop with leading policy analysts from the United States and Mexico entitled “The State of Citizen Security in Mexico: The Peña Nieto Administration’s First Year in Review”.


The purpose of the workshop was to provide a careful examination of the Peña Nieto administration’s handling of security matters and the state of citizen security, with particular interest on available indicators of crime trends, analysis of the specific policy measures of the Peña Nieto administration, and the efforts of civil society to confront recent security problems in Mexico.


The event was presided by Georgetown Professor John Bailey, and featured Justice in Mexico’s Director David Shirk along with SUNY Albany professor Matthew Ingram, Mexican expert and analyst Alejandro Hope, and Ariel Moutsatsos from the Mexican Embassy in Washington.
