Beyond Mérida

It doesn't seem possible, but the three years of the Mérida Initiative will next year be behind us (aid packages just grow up so quickly!). Foreign Relations Secretary Patricia Espinosa says that the collaboration will continue after the expiration of Mérida, most likely under another name. It will be interesting to see if the governments react to the criticisms that not enough of Mérida was directed toward fortifying and attacking corruption in Mexico's security agencies.
