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 editions of this Dialogue in 2021, 2016 and 2011. The III Dialogue, which took place on 11 May 2021, addressed the fight against cybersecurity, corruption, money laundering and arms trafficking, among other shared priorities.
