Authoritarianism in Mexico. Political and criminal violence against journalists and activists

Since the early 2000s—particularly after the launch of the war on drugs in 2006—Mexico has experienced a dramatic increase in different forms of violence against journalists, community leaders, and (international) human rights activists, contributing to Mexico’s current reputation as the country with the most missing journalists, according to international NGO Article 19. In order to begin a constructive dialogue on this, a roundtable will be held, with the participation of scholars and specialists on Mexico and political science, and members from international NGOs.
