CONFERENCE AT UNIVERSIDAD DEL ROSARIO ON THE WAR ON DRUGS AND THE PROPERTY REGIME IN MEXICO
The Sociology Programme and the School of Human Sciences at Universidad del Rosario are pleased to invite those interested to attend Dr. Alke Jenss’ lecture entitled: “Coloniality of Power and State Crimes. The transformation of communal property in Mexico during the ‘War on Drugs'”.
Dr. Jenss’ lecture will take place on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. in Auditorium 2 of the Edificio Nuevo, in the Cloister at Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá. The talk will examine the conflicts that currently exist between two types of property regimes in Mexico: private property and communal land tenure. It will review the ways in which the Mexican state has not only violated the legal protection of communal property, but has also promoted a growing shift from communal land to private property regimes, which is occurring in the context of the war on drugs.
The conference is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students at Universidad del Rosario, teachers, researchers and people interested in the subject.
Dr. Alke Jenss is a researcher at the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute for Social Science Research in Freiburg, Germany. Her lines of research focus, among other things, on security issues, the “war on drugs”, governance, political economy and land ownership conflicts, with an emphasis on Latin America (Mexico and Colombia).
The conference is coordinated by Dr. Carolina Galindo, associate professor at the School of Human Sciences at Universidad del Rosario and spokesperson for this university at the CAPAZ.
