Mexico has successfully revamped its economy over the last three decades but is increasingly threatened by drug cartels, crime, and corruption. The expansion of lawlessness in certain regions of the country threatens Mexico’s advancements in manufacturing, education, and health care, and jeopardizes the country’s economic stability and vital tourism industry.

On Wednesday, June 28, Hudson Institute hosted a panel discussion on the state of Mexico’s struggle against drugs and crime, as well as its ongoing efforts to expand the rule of law. Here an excerpt of ideas expressed by Armando González, Editor-in-Chief, La Nación (Costa Rica) and David W. Murray, Senior Fellow & Co-Director, Center for Substance Abuse Policy Research, Hudson Institute.
