The four signatory organizations have identified deficiencies in the implementation of the National Protection Mechanism for Human Rights Defenders and Journalists, and recommended some changes. At the end of the EU-Mexico Human Rights Dialogue, the Mexican government acknowledged the petitions submitted by the Civil Society Organisations – who will be closely monitoring the progress made by the government in delivering the promised changes.
