Canning House,
126 Wigmore Street, W1U 3RZ

6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at Canning House for a broad discussion on the upcoming general election in Mexico, due to take place on the 1st July. Mexico is one of six Latin American countries that are electing a new president this year, but as the 15th largest economy in the world and the second largest in the region, this election carries particular weight. Coinciding with the visit of a judge from Mexico’s Federal Electoral Tribunal, this event will be a chance to not only assess the electoral landscape more broadly, but also to consider issues such as electoral transparency.

We are delighted to welcome a distinguished panel to speak. Justice José Luis Vargas, a judge at Mexico’s Federal Electoral Tribunal, will talk about the Tribunal’s role and electoral best practice in the context of the upcoming general election. Andrés Mejía Acosta, Senior Lecturer in Political Economy of Emerging Markets at King’s College London will provide a comparative perspective on ideological shifts in the region, in an important electoral year for Latin America.

Giles Paxman, Canning House Trustee and former UK Ambassador to Mexico, will chair this event.

This event is now fully booked.
