Internship with Justice in Mexico

Interested in security, rule of law, and human rights in Mexico? Get involved as an intern or volunteer with Justice in Mexico!

Justice in Mexico is an internationally recognized program based at the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of San Diego that conducts original research, promotes public discourse, and informs public policy on such issues as crime and violence, corruption and accountability, judicial reform, and human rights protections in Mexico. The program's cutting edge research and publications are regularly consulted by U.S. and Mexican governments, NGOs, and news media. Justice in Mexico relies heavily on the contributions and participation of graduate and undergraduate students and volunteers from the University of San Diego and surrounding academic institutions in the San Diego-Tijuana region. Student interns and volunteers monitor current events in Mexico, gather data on crime, violence, and human rights abuses, and help to organize programs and public events. USD students are eligible for up to 3 units of upper division credit for their participation as a Justice in Mexico intern. Anyone interested in collaborating on this project during the Spring 2014 academic semester should contact the Justice in Mexico program coordinator Octavio Rodriguez at
