Dr. Abelardo Rodriguez, Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico, examines Mexico's challenges in facing the new security environment in the hemisphere since 9/11. His article argues that Mexico's incapacity to develop a coherent national and regional security framework has paralleled Mexico's inability to undergo a reformation of the Mexican State, and with it, of national security reform. Dr. Rodriguez explains the current state of Mexico's approach toward national and homeland security issues, given the internal political situation since the election of Vicente Fox and the National Action Party (PAN) in 2000 and the latest presidential election in 2006. Dr. Rodriguez shows how Mexico's internal political situation exacerbates the prospect for regional security cooperation with Canada and the United States in creating a new security perimeter in North America.
