PDF: printable flyer

Organized by the Center for the Study of Women in Society’s Américas Research Interest Group, this roundtable will explore how gendered violence in Guatemala leads indigenous women to flee the country as refugees to seek asylum in the United States. By putting experts on gendered violence in Central America into conversation with Oregon-based asylum attorneys, the roundtable will explore the legal reforms with greatest potential to provide effective justice for its survivors. The roundtable will address many critical questions such as: in countries with multiple forms of violence and weak rule of law, what resources are available to displaced women seeking justice and security? What obstacles to gendered justice in Guatemala push women to leave the country? Once in the U.S., what factors prevent women from seeking protection through asylum, and what resources help them create new systems of support and autonomy?

Speakers:

  • Erin Beck, UO Department of Political Science
  • Gabriela Martínez, UO School of Journalism and Communication
  • Lynn Stephen, UO Department of Anthropology
  • Vannia Glasinovic, U.S. Asylum Attorney
  • Christopher Anders, U.S. Asylum Attorney
  • Anna Ciesielski, U.S. Asylum Attorney

Sponsored by the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society’s Américas Research Interest Group, the Wayne Morse Center for Law & Politics, and the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies.
