Crime and Migration in the Americas

 

Mexico's Development Plan Won't Reduce Migration from Central America

In the 21st century, migration patterns in the Americas have changed dramatically.  Historically, the decision to migrate tended to rest heavily on economic factors, and the United States typically registered the largest number of migrants from countries like Mexico.  Over the past 20 years, these patterns have changed.  Migration from Central American countries has increased dramatically, driven primarily by fear of crime and gang violence.  The numbers of women, families, and unaccompanied children making the dangerous journey north have also risen sharply and created challenges for U.S. immigration policy.

This course examines migration trends over the past 30 years.  Students will study the ways in which crime and violence, particularly at the hands of organized criminal groups, have shaped the politics, economies, and societies of many Latin American countries.  Students will analyze how crime and violence have shaped migration trends and assess the ability of U.S. policy to respond to changing migration patterns in the hemisphere.

Public Engagement in Communities Using an Equity Lens as a Reflective Practitioner: Public Engagement requires listening and facilitating challenging dialogues. In public life and with responsibility for and with the public, we need knowledge and skills necessary for addressing inequities and discrimination in decision-making. In this hybrid course, students will learn theoretical frames and facilitative practices effective for increasing social equity and fostering participation in the decisions that impact people’s lives. We will reflect on our identities, learn to guide challenging conversations, and analyze power dynamics.

During this 8-week course we will mostly engage in asychronous learning.

Please note: During this 8-week course we will mostly engage in asychronous learning. There will be THREE online (zoom) synchronous sessions where we will gather together to engage in learning and dialogue as a group. These sessions will not be lectures but rather time for us to build on our shared learning and experiences.  If enrolling in this course, please hold the following dates and times. 

  • Tuesday, March 22nd 4-6pm
