Crossing Mexico: Migration & Human Rights In the Age of Criminal Politics

Crossing Mexico: Migration & Human Rights In the Age of Criminal Politics

John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center
General Public 

The Crossing Mexico four-day conference will convene scholars, artists, and activists to share work and experiences in order to imagine pathways for action. 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.
