Mexico Security Initiative

The Strauss Center’s Mexico Security Initiative (MSI) aims to address the gap in policy-relevant scholarship on Mexico and Central America’s violence, citizen insecurity, and rule of law, as well as U.S.-bound migration stemming from these issues. MSI aspires to create educational opportunities, research, and community engagement that will spur sophisticated inquiry into the causes, dimensions, and consequences of the violence and migration as well as the adequacy of past, present, and potential policy responses within Mexico and the United States.
