MEXICO’S 2018 ELECTIONS

MEXICO’S 2018 ELECTIONS
INSTITUTIONAL SAFEGUARDS AND CHALLENGES

Princeton University, A 17 Louis A. Simpson International Building, Friday, April 13, 2018, 2:00-6:00pm

The 2018 electoral cycle in Mexico will take place at one of the most challenging moments in its history. Organized crime and political violence are at their highest point. Political corruption scandals at all levels of government have exposed the level of impunity in the country and the fragility of its rule of law.

Against all of this stand the two most successful transitional institutions that allowed the country to become an electoral democracy in the 1990s: the Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE) and the Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación (TEPJF). The 2018 election will pose an interesting test to their strength and the legitimacy of the process.

By bringing together Lorenzo Cordova, President of INE, Reyes Rodríguez, Justice of the Electoral Tribunal of the Federal Judiciary, Javier Aparicio, Head of the Political Studies Division at CIDE in Mexico City, and Guillermo Trejo, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, this colloquium will draw on their specialized expertise to analyze the conditions under which the upcoming electoral process will take place, as well as the relative confidence we can have on the fairness of the process.
