Security risk and rule of law in Mexico

Security risk and rule of law in Mexico: Basic Considerations

MEI Report No. 838

February 17, 2017

In the light of the disruptions of highway traffic and commerce, including vandalism, that took place nationwide in Mexico during the first two weeks of January, a fresh look at the issues of security and rule of law is appropriate. In this report, we take note of Mexico’s low international ranking regarding the rule of law and the universal distrust of the police.

We examine several aspects of security risk such as the vulnerability of an organization to extortion by organized crime. In parallel, we raise the topic of the behavior of public officials who seek to monetize their position or experience in government service.

The report lists familiar and new precepts for personal security.
