Democracy and Criminal Violence: Disentangling the Linkages between Drugs and Politics in Mexico
Monday, November 9, 2015
Noon
Benson Latin American Collection, 2nd floor conference room, SRH 1.208

The outbreak and escalation of large-scale criminal violence in Mexico has taken place as the country transitioned from authoritarian rule to democracy. This talk will assess how the spread of electoral competition in Mexico’s one-party regime and in the democratic period has affected the evolution of criminal violence and how organized criminal groups are beginning to take over local governments and are remaking local political orders in a large swath of the country’s territory.
