El Universal

John J Bailey

Mexico is a victim of the United States’ drug culture. However, the debate that unleashed after the Sandy Hook massacre in December 2012 –where 20 children and 6 adults became victims of our current laws–  may turn into a reformed gun policy influenced by American public opinion.  Hence, it is possible for  gun trafficking and violence to diminish in Mexico if the United States decides to take a progressive stance towards this issue.


La Jornada

Napoleon Gomez Urrutia

While President Barack Obama’s  second term gives Mexico the opportunity to expand and reinforce its bilateral relationship with the U.S., it is important for President Enrique Peña Nieto to consider what Obama emphasized in his speech, ” a country with extreme inequality does not have a future”. If Mexico does not reduce inequality, expand freedom, and create a fair justice system, it will find itself far from obtaining a prosperous future.



Lorenzo Meyer

The result of the triple alliance between PRI, PAN, and PRD is “Pacto por México” (PM). While PM promises to be a fresh project with the goal to ensure the governance of Mexico’s political system, it is also important to pay attention its ambiguities and contradictions.
