Event Details

Kevin J. Middlebrook analyzes how, in contrast to the recent experiences of many Latin American countries, the organized labour movement in Mexico has not been a force for democratization. This seminar presentation will examine the reasons for Mexican ‘exceptionalism’ and the impact of political democratization on unions and state-labour relations in Mexico since the 1990s.

Kevin J. Middlebrook is Professor of Latin American Politics at the Institute of the Americas, University College London. He was previously affiliated with the Institute of Latin American Studies (2002-04) and the Institute for the Study of the Americas (2004-12), both at the University of London. Between 1995 and 2001 he was Director of the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California, San Diego, where he also held an appointment as Adjunct Professor of Political Science.

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
