ABSTRACT
We review the main political events in Mexico during 2012. During this year, the election that brought the Partido Revolucionario Institucional back to Mexico's presidency appeared as a central episode. One of the legacies of the presidential campaign was the emergence of the social movement #YoSoy132 made up primarily of youngsters and university students. During 2012, the Mexican economy continued to grow, slowly but at a steady pace, while different reforms were approved in Congress. We review the labor, educational, and political reforms. Finally, we describe the evolution of violence –homicides and disappearances– and changes in the prosecution of human rights violations.
