Municipal Scorecard Report 2009. Selected by the IFC to develop this index in Mexico and compare it to other Latin American countries. The study benchmarked over thirty municipalities in the country on such procedures as starting a business, applying for building permits, and property tax.

Case study for training key public functionaries. Wrote a series of case studies for the Ministry of Public Service for the training of public servants in the areas of administration, economics, social and political affairs. The cases were made on the towns of Cancun, Ciudad Juarez, Naucalpan, Oaxaca and San José de Gracia, San Pedro Garza García.

Survey: "Citizenship, Democracy and Drug Violence" (CIDENA 2011). Public opinion survey conducted by CEGI and the Collective Analysis of the Security With Democracy (Casede) and the Systems Opinion and Market Intelligence (SIMO). It is one of the largest surveys conducted until now and that best reflected the point of view of citizens in fighting corruption and drug trafficking, citizen participation and human rights.

New Criminal Justice System in Mexico. The CEGI actively involved in promoting the reform of the criminal justice system in Mexico in various forums and various organizations. One such effort has led him to document and analyze the case of penal reform in the Mexican state of Baja California that has brought remarkable results in the administration of justice and the fight against insecurity. The reform of the penal system is cornerstone for the country's governance.

This project, currently underway, brings twenty current and former CEOs together with former government officials, leading scholars from key think tanks and Harvard University, and influential journalists to address concerns about the future of market capitalism. The purpose of this project is to identify concrete actions that business leaders can take to address some of these threats.
