A Midyear Review of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s Administration

Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador took office last December, bolstered by a campaign that promised to stem the escalating corruption and violence that have held back the country’s economic and social development. At this event, a group of academic and industry experts examined López Obrador’s initial steps to reduce crime and improve public safety and the administration of justice in Mexico. They also assessed the long-term impact of his administration’s policies on these critical issues.

This event was co-sponsored by the Baker Institute Mexico Center and Control Risks. Follow @BakerMexicoCtr on Twitter and join the conversation online with #BakerMexico.
