November 6: TraCCC, in conjunction with GMU Latin American Studies, will host Dr. Claudia Paz y Paz and a discussion of organized crime and corruption in Central America. Dr. Paz y Paz served as Guatemala’s first female attorney general from 2010 to 2014, during which time she built a reputation for being unafraid to confront the environment of  impunity that had long gripped the country. Among her targets were those involved in organized crime, and perpetrators of gender-based violence and human rights abuses. Despite threats to her safety she was the first official to prosecute those implicated in genocide during Guatemala’s civil war.
