The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and the Inter-American Dialogue are pleased to invite you to the presentation of the book, The Politics of Crime in Mexico: Democratic Governance in a Security Trap, by John Bailey.

What kind of democracy will emerge in Mexico when the current levels of violence are brought under control? Will democratic reformers gain strength in the new equilibrium between government and criminal organizations? Or will corruption tilt the balance toward criminal interests? In the context of these questions, Bailey explores the “security trap” in which Mexico is currently caught—where the dynamics of crime, violence, and corruption conspire to override efforts to put the country on a path toward democratic governance. In addition to Bailey’s presentation of the book, several leading policy analysts will serve as commentators in the discussion. 

Event attendees may purchase the book at a discounted price. The flyer below has more details about purchasing the book.
