[The text below characterizes the phenomenon of organized crime in Mexico, which is dominated by illegal drug trafficking organizations and provokes high levels of violence, and its relationship with the configuration of political power. In order to understand the dimensions of the problem, this contribution also explores the definitions that have been used to characterize organized crime. It also examines the available data on the illegal drug market to show inconsistencies and inadequacies that are often overlooked. Finally, it weighs the strategies that the Mexican government has deployed during the Calderón administration to combat drug trafficking and the widespread social dissatisfaction with the high levels of violence and the number of fatalities.]
