What is civic engagement? It is the cumulative effects of processes by which private and public organizations interact with members of society. The staff of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is intimately familiar with such processes, and this working paper from Octavio Rodriguez Ferreira looks into the role of civil society in reforming criminal justice in Mexico. This 43-page paper, released in August 2013, offers a brief introduction to the current situation in Mexico and goes on to explain what long-term reform might look like in the country. It’s a compelling work that persons with an interest in international relations, comparative legal systems, and the general governmental milieu of Mexico will find most intriguing.
