México: estrategia de seguridad y de la lucha contra el crimen organizado

Iberoamérica. 2017. No. 1. P. 74-95.

This article presents an analysis of the new security strategy and fight against the organized crime, which was developed by the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, occupying the post of head of state from 2012 to 2018. Peña Nieto has received a heavy inheritance in matters of crime. Violence, been raging across the country, has become completely uncontrolled. The severity of this problem has put it forward to a central place in his campaign.
Security strategy of the new president differs from the strategy of his predecessor F. Calderon by the reason that E. Peña Nieto has given the insurance of the safety of the country population top priority, and put the fight against drug traffic with the assistance of army on the second place. Based on statistical data, the author concludes that this strategy has not justified the high hopes, pinned on it by the Government of E. Peña Nieto and the Mexican society, and does not differ from F. Calderon's strategy in the gained results. The article identifies the main reasons, which prevent the efficient combat to the rise of organized crime and drug traffic.
