September 26th, 2015 will mark the one year anniversary of the disappearance of 43 students from the Rural Normal School Raúl Isidro Burgos in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Mexico. On September 5, 2015, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights’s Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts published a report at the conclusion of their six-month independent investigation of the Ayotzinapa case.
Professors James Cavallaro and Alberto Díaz-Cayeros will discuss the significance of the report, which criticizes the Mexican government for having mishandled their investigation of the case and sharply contradicts many of the conclusions the government has held out as the “historical truth,” as well as highlight other topics of significance, as the search for justice for the students and their families passes the one year mark.
