Mexico -- Drugs and Violence -- Can Recent Progress be Sustained? with David Mares -- 20 Years After NAFTA -- Center for US-Mexican Studies & Osher UCSD

3/24/2014; 56 minutes

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in December of 2012 promising a new approach to curb drug trafficking that would be both more effective and less violent than the strategy of his predecessor. The new enforcement plan seems to be working but is it sustainable? David Mares, director of the Center for Iberian and Latin American Studies at UC San Diego, argues that the answer is fundamental to Mexico's future and of great interest to the United States. Mares is presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at UC San Diego. (#27717)
