Speaker information

Dr Livia I Schubiger, Assistant Professor in Comparative Politics, LSE

Why do some communities engage in armed mobilization in response to disorder and insecurity, while others do not? Can these communities improve local order in the absence of a strong and impartial state? This talk will present a study of the sources of self-defense mobilization in Mexico and how these groups affect contemporary levels of crime.

This event is part of the Latin American Political Economy –LAPE Seminar Series.
