As Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador approaches four years in office, our panel analyses advances and challenges under his government.
The 2018 election of Andrés Manuel López Obrador raised hope that Mexico could change direction from the neoliberal policies of his predecessors and a new approach to the drugs war that has left over 200,000 dead since 2006. Almost four years into a six-year term, how has AMLO’s government fared? What have been its main achievements? And what do the critics say? We are joined by a leading panel to discuss these questions and others.
