Gender violence and organised crime in Mexico
About this talk
Nayely Iturbe will present her work entitled “Measuring gender violence in Mexico”, followed by Roxana Gutiérrez-Romero who will talk about “Modelling and forecasting gender violence in Mexico”, and finally Yael López with a work focused on the state level with the theme “The other war: Voices of women in civil action against violence in Mexico.”
This panel is important for Mexico and the region because it highlights the surge of violence in the country, how it has changed over time, and the potential drivers. The panel also includes an important case study of Ciudad Juarez, where violence against women also increased substantially and serves as international example of how civil society reacted and trigger legislation change.
