8th Annual FDR Memorial Lecture: Formulating a New Good Neighbor Policy

4:00pm to 5:00pm


Harvard Hall

In 1943, President Roosevelt spoke at Monterrey, Mexico noting Mexico’s contributions of military support and farm laborers to the war effort. “Our two countries,” he stated, “owe their independence to the fact that your ancestors and mine held the same truths to be worth fighting for and dying for… No less important than the military cooperation and the production of supplies needed for the maintenance of our respective economies has been the exchange of those ideas and of those moral values which give life and significance to the tremendous effort of the free peoples of the world.”

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

1:30pm to 6:00pm


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 (ColMex). This activity is part of an ongoing effort by DRCLAS, the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, and the Seminar to build a network of scholars from ColMex and Harvard interested in these issues.
