The MORENA-led government promises to respect human rights and address the violations of the past, and Mexican society has high expectations. Governments across the world have formed national truth commissions, human rights tribunals, or invited in international organizations to investigate human rights violations.What models will Mexico borrow from to create its own processes of transitional justice? Guillermo Trejo is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, previously at Duke University and Centro de Investigacin y Docencia Econmicas (CIDE) in Mexico City. His research focuses on collective action and social protest, armed insurgencies and political violence, and religion and ethnic identities in authoritarian regimes and new democracies. He has advised officials of the new Mexican government on options for transitional justice processes. This event is a part of our Eyes on Mexico speaker series.
