(Dis)Respecting Sovereignty? Diachronic Justice and the Migration Crisis 

Dr. Nathan Henne 

Coordinator of Latin American Studies

Friday, September 21, 2018

3:30-4:30 p.m.

Whitney Presentation Room, Thomas Hall

What is the history behind the specific conditions that cause so many Central Americans to risk everything—their lives included—to flee to the US?  Has the US really done a better job of creating good economic opportunities? Is there merit in allegations that the US has directly and indirectly violated the sovereignty of the countries of the “Triangulo del Norte” (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras) to create the very conditions that force people to flee? Who is responsible for the current immigration crisis?

Dr. Nathan Henne connects the dots between repeated historical US interference in Central America and the current migration crisis.
