Mexican judiciary reform: an analysis from populism, institutional distrust and political dissent.

The paper aims to analyze and explain the recent judiciary reform in the doctrinal and populist environment that currently exists in Mexico, understood as a pattern of government that ignores the autonomy of the organs of the State, centralizes power, questions the spaces of autonomy of organizations of society and requires the subordination of powers –the judicial branch included– to the president, in an context that generates institutional distrust. In this sense, it will be analyze if the rules of the game for the exercise of justice comply with the impartial, credible and effective processes, taking into account that they give life to logical, general, abstract and universal norms. It will also be analyze if debate and dissent can dilute the ideological contamination of the reform due the influence political power actors have in its processes of approbation and implementation.

Keywords: populism, judiciary reform, institutional distrust, political dissent.
