The U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership (BPP) will host a discussion for the release of the 2017 Mexico Peace Index on the challenges and opportunities for building a more peaceful society in Mexico.  The Mexico Peace Index (MPI), produced by the Institute of Economics and Peace, provides a comprehensive annual measure of peacefulness in Mexico, aggregating and verifying available data.  The report aims to identify the key trends and drivers of peace, while highlighting policy opportunities.

The presentation of the findings will be followed by a public panel discussion on Civil Society’s role in peace activities in the region. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Robert Ashcraft, Chairman, U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership.
