Symposium: Human Rights and Gender Violence Education in Middle School

In this one-day symposium, organized by Associate Professor Héctor Domínguez-Ruvalcaba (Department of Spanish and Portuguese), researchers will present the initial results of collaborative work on a violence-prevention program for middle-schoolers in Estado de México. The collaboration is the result of an agreement between LLILAS and the Comisión de Derechos Humanos del Estado de México (Human Rights Commission of Mexico State), which is part of an effort to combat feminicides and other forms of violence.

Topics and participants in the symposium include:

  • Introduction to Human Rights, Enrique Urbina (Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México);
  • Sex-Gender Systems, Patricia Ravelo (CIESAS), Luis Alfonso Rico (Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México), and Héctor Domínguez-Ruvalcaba;
