#LASCWeds Talk: Mining Conflicts in Cajamarca (Peru), by Lynda Sullivan


In the northern highlands of Peru, in a region known as Cajamarca, indigenous-campesino communities are struggling to protect their land and their water supply from destruction. A multinational mining corporation, backed up by the World Bank, wants to turn the mountain lakes, the source of water for tens of thousands of subsistence farmers, into immense open pits. This would be the biggest extractive project that Latin America has ever seen.

We've moved!

#LASCWeds Talk: Migration and Human Trafficking: The Case of Trafficking of Children in Mexico, by Diana Correa


Research on Trafficking in Persons in Mexico is only a few decades old, and most of it has been focused  on sexual exploitation of women. In an effort to add to the knowledge on the subject, current researchers have taken interest in trafficking with different purposes other than sexual exploitation particularly forced labour, as well as working with other groups for example children. The talk will provide a brief explanation on what trafficking is, an overview of the general situation of Mexico and will then focus on children both mexican nationals and migrant.
