Why did Mexico become so violent as the country transitioned from authoritarian rule to democracy?
¿Por qué México experimentó un estallido de violencia al transitar a la democracia?
Join us for a discussion in English and Spanish of a new book that addresses this question: Votes, Drugs, and Violence: The Political Logic of Criminal Wars in Mexico (Cambridge University Press, 2020) by Kellogg Faculty Fellow Guillermo Trejo (associate professor of political science and director and principal investigator at the Notre Dame Violence and Transitional Justice Lab [V-TJLab]) and former Kellogg Visiting Fellow Sandra Ley Gutierrez (Department of Political Science, Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas [CIDE]; research affiliate, Kellogg Institute's Notre Dame Violence and Transitional Justice Lab [V-TJLab]).
This book launch is co-sponsored by two institutions that were instrumental in the research and development of the book: the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE) as part of their part of the Política y Gobierno Seminar series.
