Project Description

In 2009 Democracy International conducted a comprehensive assessment of USAID’s support for rule of law programs in Mexico and Central America. The purpose of the study was to examine current political, economic, and social challenges in the region in a changing context, gauge the effectiveness of rule of law programs to date in advancing democratic development, and make recommendations for strategic priorities for related programming in the region over the next five to ten years. The report gave highest priority to improving the institutional performance of the key justice sector institutions, devising workable responses to the citizen security problem, and supporting efforts to combat corruption.
