Mexico’s Public Security Outlook: What Does the Future Hold?
Public security dynamics in Mexico have witnessed dramatic changes over the past few years. Driven by economic incentives, criminal organizations have evolved into mafia-style groups seeking dominance over particular regions and activities, while new, smaller gangs have proliferated across the country. As a result, violence and crime have reached record highs. This unprecedented lawlessness has generated new security risks for both citizens and businesses, as crime has begun to encroach on previously safe areas.
This presentation will highlight ongoing and emerging trends in violence and criminal activity, identify the driving factors behind the country’s public security crisis, present a number of scenarios for the future, and outline policies that could help the new government mitigate the crisis
The presentation will be held in English It'll be followed by a Q&A session and a networking cocktail Chatham House rules apply.
