Social Media and Human Rights


Global Justice Now just published the article that colleague Mónica Moreno Figueroa and I co-authored for the March 2015 edition of Red Pepper  magazine on its blog.  In 'More smoke and mirrors: State apathy towards enforced disappearance of students outrages Mexico,' we address the current human rights crisis in Mexico, as well as the role that the use of social media is playing in that crisis.  The article is available on the Red Pepper website here.
