Security Cooperation in Mexico

by Shannon K. O'Neil
June 20, 2013


I was in Washington D.C. this past Tuesday to give testimony on U.S.-Mexico security cooperation at a Senate Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere and Global Narcotics Affairs’ hearing. You can read my written testimony here or watch the full hearing video here—which also includes insightful perspectives from Nik Steinberg, Senior Researcher in the Americas Division at Human Rights Watch, and Duncan Wood, the Director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center. As well as government officials, Roberta S. Jacobson, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, William R. Brownfield, Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, and Mark Feierstein, Assistant Administrator for Bureau of Latin America and the Caribbean.

I look forward to your thoughts in the comments section or on Twitter and Facebook!
