Violence and Displacement in a Latin American Context

Faith-Based Accompaniment of Central American and Colombian Youth and Young Adults

Please join the CHRC and Faculty Fellow Professor Maria Vidal de Haymes for a brown-bag seminar on violence and displacement in a Latin American context. Globally, the number of individuals that have experienced displacement due to conflict, generalized violence and development projects has escalated dramatically in the last decade. This discussion will focus on research in progress regarding both internal and transnational movements of people in the Americas, largely due to violence. More specifically, the study that will be discussed focuses on the experience of displaced youth and young adults in situations of conflict and generalized violence in Colombia, the northern triangle countries of Central America, and Mexico.
