Human Rights and Repression: Latin America in Comparative Perspective
Stanford's Poverty, Violence and Governance Lab is hosting a two-day conference that seeks to advance understanding of the causes and consequences of human rights violations in both dictatorships and democracies. It brings together researchers studying repression – including illegal detention, police killings, and censorship – to better understand the conditions under which states violate human rights, and how this affects the relationship between the state and its citizens.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies and Stanford Global Studies.
