Contemporary Mexico faces a complex crisis of violence and insecurity with high levels of impunity and the lack of an effective rule of law. These weaknesses in the rule of law are multidimensional and involve elements of institutional design, the specific content of the laws, particularities of political competition and a culture of legality in a country with severe social inequalities.

This book discusses necessary institutional and legal reforms to develop the rule of law in a context of democratic, social and economic transformations, with a chapter on "Measuring the Rule of Law in Mexico" by WJP team members Camillo Gutiérrez, Joel Martinez, Alejandro Ponce, and Leslie Solis.
