The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute is pleased to invite you to our event “Mexican Civil Society’s Battle Against Corruption: #Ley3de3.” Prominent members of Mexican civil society will discuss the mechanisms being pursued to create a proper legal framework to fight corruption in Mexico. In particular, they will discuss the current status and challenges of a “citizen initiative” known as #Ley3de3, which is currently being discussed in the Mexican Congress. This initiative represents the first time in Mexico’s history that civil society has come together to take legislative processes against corruption into their own hands. #Ley3de3 was broadly backed by civil society (more than 600 thousand signatures in favor of it) but is currently frozen in Congress due to lack of agreement between political parties.
