Mexico is one of the world’s most violent countries, but the violence is not evenly distributed across the territory (as is also the case in many other countries) the reasons for this is not well understood. In a large research project Karina Ansolabehere and her colleague are investigating the patterns of violence in different Mexican states and the conditions that are fuelling – and fail to stop – it, including the role of the law-enforcement institutions.
Participants include Karina Ansolabehere (UNAM & FLACSO, Mexico City) in dialogue with Daniel Brinks (UT Austin) + Benedicte Bull (Univeristy of Oslo tbc*).
This event is part of the 2017 Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation. See full program.
The event is free and open to all.
