Election Series | Assessing Mexico's Democracy

Date & Time

May. 7, 2024
10:30am – 11:45am ET


Online Only


Mexico has been an electoral democracy for nearly 25 years, and has experienced healthy changes in party control over the years. Why then, do multiple indices measuring democratic freedom and human rights place Mexico solidly in the mid-range? Some point to high rates of poverty and economic inequality, while others explore how rule of law in the country remains weak due to a host of factors, from the power of organized crime groups, to corruption, and rampant political violence. 

To share their reports on Mexico's democracy and objectively analyze how and why it has declined in comparison to other countries, the Mexico Institute will host a webinar with scholars and experts from leading organizations that collect data on democracy around the world. 

Please join us online, Tuesday May 7th from 10:30 am to 11:45am EST to engage in this pertinent discussion.
