Mexico, Central America & the Caribbean Program Conference: Struggles for Peace in Mexico

1:30pm to 6:00pm

Location: 

CGIS South, Belfer Case Study Hall (S020)

Over the last decade Mexico has become an epicenter of criminal violence in the region, and this side of the story is regularly reported in the news. Less attention has been paid to the struggles for peace. In this Conference we will discuss two initiatives undertaken by the Seminar on Violence and Peace of El Colegio de Mexico. This activity is part of an ongoing effort by DRCLAS, the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights and the above mentioned seminar to build a network of scholars from El Colegio and Harvard interested in these issues.
