The apparent massacre of 43 students in Guerrero, Mexico has sparked widespread protests across Mexico, as the population pushes the government to turn its focus to the ongoing violence and insecurity in the country. And the past two years have seen President Enrique Pena Nieto tackle his ambitious agenda of energy, telecommunications, tax, and energy reforms. But what does the resurgence of this issue - the challenges Mexico continues to face in public security, corruption, and human rights - mean, ultimately, for Pena Nieto's government and for the future of the Mexican state? Join us for a timely discussion with Duncan Wood, Jose Jaime Hernandez, and CSIS Americas Program director Carl Meacham.
