The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility invites you to the conference “Crossing Mexico / Migration & Human Rights in the Age of Criminal Politics.” These paired conferences seek to enrich understandings of—and bring visibility to—the increasingly complex and violent processes that characterize contemporary Mexican and Central American migration north.
From the violent population displacements in Central America and countless migrant deaths and disappearances in Mexico to the for-profit detention and deportation regime in the United States, the entire migratory formation has been enveloped by a human rights catastrophe of unprecedented proportions. The conference will convene scholars, artists, and activists to share work and experiences in order to imagine pathways for action.
