Date and Time

UC San Diego, The Great Hall
The School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS) at UC San Diego invites you to a public event on Tuesday, April 23, entitled "Mexico Between Politics and Organized Crime."
Adela Navarro Bello, co-director of the Tijuana-based weekly "Zeta," will discuss the challenges of politics and organized crime, and review her investigative news stories about drug trafficking and corruption. Navarro has received numerous awards for her fearless reporting and editorial policy, including the 2007 International Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists and the 2011 Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation. Though 69 of her colleagues have been murdered during Mexico’s drug war, she continues to publish investigative news stories about drug trafficking and corruption in Baja California.
A reception will be held after the talk that offers you an opportunity to personally meet with Navarro.
