Criminal Governance in the Americas Conference

Wed., Oct. 17, 2018    

Lurking behind a well-known fact—rapid urbanization in the developing world has left huge populations living in informal areas, where criminal groups often govern daily life—lies a startling truth. Tens if not hundreds of millions of people live under some form of criminal governance, yet its systematic study is only in its infancy. This conference brings together top scholars and practitioners to explore critical questions within this budding research agenda.
