Forced Disappearances and Political Violence in Mexico: Past and Present


This session will be a dialogue with Camilo Vicente Ovalle (Historian and member of the Comisión para el Acceso a la Verdad de la Guerra Sucia) and Guillermo Trejo (Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame and Director of the Violence and Transitional Justice Lab at the Kellogg Institute). 

Jaime Pensado (Notre Dame) will moderate this event, which will be held in Spanish, with a Q&A section in English and Spanish. We will discuss political violence and the difficulties in establishing transnational justice in Mexico from a historical, contemporary, and interdisciplinary perspective.
