Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches, and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations. 

Why do victims of criminal extortion resist victimization in different ways? Eduardo Moncada, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, argues that the nature of pre-existing associational institutions and whether police are autonomous from criminal actors shapes the nature and trajectory of collective responses to criminal extortion. The study compares responses to criminal extortion in Colombia, El Salvador, and Mexico.

This series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Professional Studies, The Program in International Relations at NYU’s GSAS, the Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.
