A forum that will bring together scholars, political leaders, and institutions leading the discussion on organized crime, corruption and drug trafficking in Latin America.
Two day forum
Friday, February 22nd 8:15AM - 6:00 PM & Saturday, February 23rd 9:15AM - 5:00 PM
The escalation of drug-related violence in Latin American countries in recent years has prompted an urgent debate about the effectiveness and costs of current anti-drug strategies being implemented in the region. Scholars from different countries have produced a significant amount of work and analysis about the causes and consequences of the upsurge in drug-related violence in the region, the role of the government and the mechanisms through which drug cartels compete to increase their market share and their effects on violence and crime.
