CONGRESS HOUSE, LONDON

 

In 2018 Mexico will elect a new president. The government of Enrique Peña Nieto has been a disaster for democracy and human rights, with rampant violence, political corruption and impunity. Trump’s efforts to build a wall and renegotiate NAFTA also challenge Mexico’s political establishment. The panel will reflect on these issues and the outlook for diverse actors, including civil society, to engage and influence these processes to transform Mexico’s democracy and strengthen the protection of human rights.

Speakers:

  • Tony Burke
  • Rupert Knox
  • Jan Nimmo
  • Louise Regan

Chair: Laura Morales
