Rule of Law

Speeches Shim

Impunity - and the crime, violence and corruption that it enables - is Mexico’s principal governance challenge. With nearly 93 percent of crimes going unreported or uninvestigated, Mexico’s high level of impunity reduces economic growth and hinders citizen faith in government. USAID’s rule of law activities help reduce impunity and improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability of Mexico’s justice institutions. They partner primarily with state justice institutions as well as civil society to work together to more effectively identify, investigate, and prosecute high-impact crimes. USAID also collaborates on public policy, helping leaders in Mexico’s justice system to expand data-based decision making to better program resources in response to citizen needs.
