The Future of Mexico

by Bella Avalos

On Monday, September 18, 2017, we welcomed Mexican Senator Armando Rios Piter to speak on the future of politics in Mexico. The event was co-sponsored with The Center for Latin American Studies and the Latin American Policy Association.

Senator Rios Piter, an independent representing the Mexican state of Guerrero, shared his reasons for being independent, the importance of challenging traditional power structures, as well about as his efforts to motivate young citizens to vote and create an "OLA Independiente," an Independent Wave. The discussion, moderated by Walsh School of Foreign Service Professor John Tutino, also covered current political issues in Mexico, such as corruption, inequality, and the upcoming 2018 presidential election.

Thank you to all who joined!
