Mexico

Mixed messages have come from Mexico in recent years. The economy, battered by the 2008 crisis but fueled since then by foreign investment, is growing again. Exports are strong: no other country except Canada trades as much with the United States. The number of Mexicans migrating north of the border, meanwhile, appears to be decreasing.

At the same time, high levels of gang violence erode the fabric of society and act as a brake on development. Tourist revenue has shrunk. Southern states see scant economic growth. Their largely indigenous population has very few opportunities for social advancement. Service delivery remains inadequate.

To combat inequality in Mexico, IDLO has worked to identify green economy opportunities. Separately, it is helping strengthen legal services for people with HIV.
