Event Description:
Marxe Global Insights: Lynching in the Americas
12:30pm - 2:00pm (EST)


The United States and its neighbors in the Western Hemisphere have a long history of lynching.  These acts of collective murder have often played a critical role in enforcing regressive social norms across the region both in the past and today.  Bringing together five distinguished panelists, this round table will examine the historical and contemporary practices of lynching in countries around the Americas with a particular focus on Haiti, Mexico, and the United States.  The panel will conclude with an examination of potential policy responses to these actions.
