Professor Sergio Aguayo (El Colegio de México) will deliver a conference about the two pillars of organized crime’s extraordinary empowerment. The first one is the “dual state”, the existence of two governments. Aguayo will concentrate on the second pillar centered on geopolitical factors and select the most important events in the century that goes from 1920 to 2022.
