"Bootstrap Justice: The Search for Mexico's Disappeared," by Janice Gallagher, LACS Weekly Seminar Series

Monday, November 22, 2021 at 1:00pm to 2:15pm

G-01 Stimson Hall

What does it take to challenge entrenched judicial dysfunction? In this talk, Janice Gallagher previews the central argument from her forthcoming book, "Bootstrap Justice: The Search for Mexico's Disappeared." She shows how the sustained mobilization of families of the disappeared widens cracks in impunity produced by shifting state-criminal alliances, and highlights the key role of state allies.  Speaker is in-person.

Cornell Community may attend in-person at 1pm G01 Stimson Hall
