Universidad de los Andes and Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO)

Research Interests:

My research agenda focuses on crime and political violence in Latin America, particularly in Colombia, Central America, and Mexico. I am also interested in historical legacies of violence and how they affect contemporary outcomes. To study these and other topics I use a combination of experimental and quasi-experimental methods, as well as qualitative case studies. While I wrote my dissertation on Colombia, and live in Bogotá, I have expanded my geographic focus to Mexico and the three countries in the so-called "Northern Triangle" of Central America: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Prior to graduate school, I worked for three years on human rights and development, primarily in East and Southern Africa.

Research Interests:

My primary research focus has been on illicit drug markets, illicit enterprise, street gangs, organized crime and the history of prohibition. I am author of Suppressing Illicit Opium Production: Successful Intervention in Asia and the Middle East (IB Taurus, 2016) and editor of Historical Perspectives on Organized Crime and Terrorism (Routledge, 2018) an edited volume based upon the premise that historical accounts of organized crime and terrorism offer critically important lessons for understanding and responding to contemporary threats and phenomena.

Charlotte Wrigley-Asante

University of Ghana

Research Interests:

In the past few years, I have been working on urbanization, crime and security issues in cities. Specifically, I have been focusing on the gender dimensions of crime and safety issues in urban public spaces, particularly in low income neighbourhoods. Also, trying to unravel some of the factors contributing to the gendered patterns of crime. In future I would want to focus on security issues in women dominated-urban spaces and then would want to research into gender-based violence particularly among children in cities.
