Strategies to Control Mexican Drug-Trafficking Violence

Mark A.R. Kleiman / Steven Davenport
Published Online: 2012-12-19 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/1941-2851.1047


Drug law enforcement in source and transit countries such as Mexico naturally tends to increase the incentives for drug-related violence, unless enforcement is configured deliberately to create disincentives instead. A program of focused enforcement aimed sequentially at the most violent drug-dealing organizations in Mexico might succeed in reducing the current intolerable level of violence there.
