The World Justice Project (WJP) convened a private virtual briefing on July 22, 2021, to provide stakeholders from the business and investment community, government, and civil society with concise and reliable data and analysis of the rule of law environment at the local level in Mexico.
The event focused on findings from the Mexico States Rule of Law Index 2020-2021, which is the third edition of the most comprehensive measure of citizens’ perceptions and experiences regarding the rule of law in their daily lives in all 32 states of Mexico. The 2020-2021 edition reflects the ongoing challenges to establishing rule of law in Mexico, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis that has put pressure on governance around the world.
Following Chatham House rules of non-attribution, this brief summarizes key issues discussed and highlights ways data can be used to analyze and improve rule of law situations on the ground. The briefings are available in English and Spanish.
