On the night of the 26th of September, students from the Rural Teaching College of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero in Mexico were attacked by the police. 43 of them were forcibly disappeared, 3 of them were killed along with 3 bystanders, and dozens more were wounded. This case brought by a wave of national and international condemnation while shedding light on a broader crisis on human rights in general and enforced disappearances in particular. Two years after the attack, and as part of a series of events taking place in London to commemorate that date, this discussion panel will analyse a broad range of issues from different perspectives in order to understand the impacts of the Ayotzinapa case and the current human rights situation in Mexico.
