Topic Description: The issue of migration to the United States from Latin America has overshadowed the war on drugs, which has been underway for decades with little signs of progress. What are the roots and the bureaucratic logic behind today´s dominant drug policies in Latin America? Is it time to reconsider punitive drug control policies that disrupt supply chains and punish drug possession?
Facilitator: Jesse Hingson, PhD, Professor of History and Chair of the Division of Social Sciences and Education at Jacksonville University
