AMLO's First Year in Office: Challenges and Opportunities

December 2, 2019 • 3:00 – 4:30 pm EST
Please join the CSIS Americas Program on Monday, December 2nd at 3:00pm for a public panel on Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s (AMLO) first year in office. During his first year in office AMLO has enjoyed a record-high approval rating. However, the past year has seen rising levels of violence, and AMLO has clashed with the Trump administration on issues such as trade and immigration. The panel discussion will feature U.S. and Mexico-based experts who will discuss the challenges and successes of the AMLO administration’s first year, specifically with regards to security, the economy, and the fight against corruption. The panel will also assess what domestic and international issues the administration is likely to prioritize over the next five years in office.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
