该 campaign platform of Mexico’s President-elect Andres Manuel López Obrador included vows to end corruption in the Mexican government and drive out the political mafia running the country. As López Obrador’s Dec. 1 inauguration nears, his anti-corruption strategy continues to take shape. On Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the uc san diego's School of Global Policy and Strategy Center for U.S-Mexican Studies will host a conference, discussing the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for López Obrador’s administration.

“Corruption in Mexico is pervasive to a point that annoys and depresses Mexicans,” said Rafael Fernández de Castro, director of the Center of U.S.-Mexican Studies. “López Obrador’s recent win with support from more than half of the electorate, along with his party’s new congressional majority, gives him the mandate to deliver on his campaign promise, but he could trigger a major upheaval as he strives to tackle misconduct that has infested the country.”
