Human Security and Chronic Violence in Mexico
New Perspectives and Proposals from Below
This book is the result of two years of participatory and action-oriented research into dynamics of insecurity and violence in modern-day Mexico. The wide-ranging chapters in this collection offer a serious reflection of an innovative co-construction with residents from some of the most affected communities that resulted in diagnosses of local security challenges and their impacts on individual and collective wellbeing. The book also goes on to present a series of policy proposals that aim to curtail the reproduction of violence in its multiple manifestations.
The methodological tools and original policy proposals presented here can help to enable a radical rethink of responses to the crisis of insecurity in Mexico and the wider Latin American region.
