Immigration & the 2016 Election

October 14th, 2016
9:30am - 12:00pm

Location
100A Jones Hall, Greenleaf Conference Room

What effect will campaign rhetoric have on Latino and immigrant voter turnout in the 2016 US Presidential elections? Can policy proposals on the campaign trail affect US relationships with immigrant sending countries? What effects could the campaigns have on future immigration, border, and refugee policies?  Join us for a discussion of these issues and more at the Center for Inter-American Policy & Research’s symposium on Immigration and the 2016 election.

Louis DeSipio (Professor, Political Science and Chicano/Latino Studies, Director Center for the Study of Democracy, UC Irvine) has studied Latino participation in elections from 1988 onwards, with other work focusing on immigration, incorporation and Latino and ethnic politics. 

Jennifer Merolla (Professor, Political Science, UC Riverside) specializes in the study of Political Behavior. Her recent work has focused on immigration, framing, and how the information environment and contexts of threats shape political attitudes.

Tom Wong (Assistant Professor, Political Science, UCSD) studies the politics of immigration, citizenship and migrant “illegality”. He is also currently an advisor to the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

This event is open to the faculty and graduate students of Tulane University and invited guests.

Latin America at the Crossroads: Peru

View Full Event Description

Join CIPR for the third talk in the “Latin America at the Crossroads” series, this talk focuses on Peru. Voters rejected Keiko Fujimori, daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori, for president in the April 10, 2016 elections, but gave her party a majority in Congress. The election was marked by controversy and demonstrations, with many concerned that a win for Fujimori would mark a return to the human rights violations and corruption of the elder Fujimori’s presidency.

Dr. Cynthia McClintock, Professor of Political Science and International Afairs at George Washington University, will present on these recent events. Dr. McClintock is author of Peasant Cooperatives and Political Change in Peru (Princeton University Press, 1981) and Revolutionary Movements in Latin America: El Salvador’s FMLN and Peru’s Shining Path (U.S. Institute of Peace, 1998) and the co-author of The United States and Peru: Cooperation at a Cost (Routledge, 2003). A past President of the Latin American Studies Association, she has taught at the Catholic University in Peru, appeared on major U.S. and Peruvian news programs, and testified before the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Afairs of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The talk is free and open to the public but RSVP is required.
