Security and Justice


This sectorial dialogue is based on numeral 3.3 of the Joint Executive Plan of the Mexico-European Union Strategic Association and represents the political component in bilateral relations in matters of security and justice procurement. Organized crime is a transnational challenge that knows no borders and that has a great human and economic cost. In the world, organized crime represents a great obstacle for public safety but also for citizens, the economy and state institutions. Due to its international significance and seriousness, it is essential to implement international cooperation mechanisms to combat it. To this end, Mexico and the European Union have decided to revitalize the exchange in the matter.

To date there have been two editions of this dialogue in 2016 and 2011.  The third dialogue, which is scheduled to be held in November 2020, will address a set of priority issues such as cybersecurity, measures to combat corruption, protection of personal data, and actions to combat arms trafficking, among other priority issues.
