Human Rights, Immigration and Gender in Mexico

Course #: POLSCI 370

Description:
This course looks at two interrelated topics with which the Mexican state has an extremely poor track record: the well-being of women and treatment of immigrants. Women continue to have worse prospects in education, employment, and access to healthcare, and face a spike in gender violence that has touched every social class and corner of the country. As a result, social movements continue to hold the state to account. Likewise, the Mexican government has an abysmal history in its treatment of migrants crossing the country to reach the United States. Its approach to migrants, which has vacillated between tacitly welcoming to extremely repressive, has taken on new salience in recent years and speaks to issues central to the Us-Mexico relationship and international relations more broadly. All courses will be taught in English.
