Following the signing of the EU-Mexico Preferential Treaty, which includes a human rights clause, leading international organisations have repeatedly complained of serious human rights violations by the Mexican Government.
The European Parliament urged the Mexican Government to take action with regard to the Acteal massacre and more recently, with regard to feminicide.
Has the EU established any kind of mechanism for assessing the human rights situation in Mexico? Is civil society involved in this mechanism? Does the Commission intend to undertake any action to activate the human rights clause in Mexico, as a result of the human rights situation there?
