The Future of Public Law and Social Change in Mexico: Constitutional Reforms on an Independent Judiciary, Human Rights, Equality and Discrimination

This panel aims to analyze critically the future of public law and social change in Mexico. For that purpose the panelists will revisit some of the most important reforms to the Mexican constitution in the last twenty five years, which include the consolidation of an independent judiciary (1994-1995), with a strong judicial review (2011), and the recognition of human rights, in general (2011), and the rights of indigenous peoples, in particular, including the introduction of a non-discrimination clause (2001), and contrast it to the recent reform on the judiciary (2021). The panelists will revise not only the achievements on the adjudication of equality and non-discrimination by the Mexican Supreme Court, but also the pending matters, such as substantive equality, indirect and structural discrimination, varying from at large sexism, ethno-racism, ableism, elitism and classism, to gender discrimination within the legal profession and the judiciary itself.

Chair(s): Roberto Niembro
