Join The Justice Collaboratory and Yanilda González, Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, for a discussion of Authoritarian Police in Democracy: Contested Security in Latin America (Cambridge University Press, 2020). In her timely book, González explains why coercive forms of policing have persisted in Latin America decades after democratic transitions. Based on evidence from Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia, the book explores how police forces continue to resist change by cultivating alliances with politicians that find little electoral incentives to enact meaningful reform. Yanilda González will present her work and engage in conversation with Rodrigo Canales, Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Yale School of Management and Justice Collaboratory member. The event will be moderated by Camila Gripp, Senior Research Associate at The Justice Collaboratory.
González received her Ph.D. in Politics and Social Policy from Princeton University. Her research focuses on policing,state violence, and citizenship in democracy, examining how race, class, and other forms of inequality shape theseprocesses. González previously worked at a number of human rights organizations in the US and Argentina, includingthe New York Civil Liberties Union, ANDHES, and Equipo Latinoaméricano de Justicia y Género.
