Mattiace Receives Harry Frank Guggenheim Research Award

Professor of Political Science Shannan Mattiace and co-authors Guillermo Trejo (University of Notre Dame) and Sandra Ley (CIDE, Mexico City) are the recipients of a Harry Frank Guggenheim Research Award for their work on the project “Criminal Violence and Indigenous Resistance. Why Ethnic Autonomy Institutions Deter Drug Violence in Mexico.” They will use this $40,000 grant to conduct a survey of community police and justice “users” in eastern Guerrero, Mexico. Mattiace presented this work at the Faculty Lecture Series in March 2017.
