Mexican Lawmakers Tackle Corruption in IRI-hosted Legislative Exchange

January 27, 2017

Washington, D.C.—This week, the International Republican Institute (IRI) hosted a five-day study mission for four members of the Mexican Congress dedicated to enhancing anti-corruption policies in Mexico. The exchange enabled stakeholders to share insights on this key challenge to Mexico’s stability and wider regional security.

“Corruption is one of the leading global challenges to security, prosperity and the rule of law,” said IRI President Ambassador Mark Green. “IRI is proud to support Mexican policymakers in their fight for greater transparency.”  

After three days of meetings in Washington, D.C. at venues including Congress and the Department of Justice, delegates traveled to Denver to gain exposure to state and local perspectives on this issue. The multiparty delegation consisted of the following lawmakers: Ernesto Ruffo Appel (National Action Party); Martha Angelica Tagle Martinez (Citizen Movement); Senator Maria Marcela Torres Peimbert (National Action Party); Anabel Acosta Islas (Institutional Revolutionary Party).

The study mission was hosted in partnership with the Institute for Representational Government (IRG) with support from the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
