Illegal Markets, Violence, and Inequality: Evidence from a Brazilian Metropolis analyzes Recife's contemporary drug markets. Building on extensive fieldwork and interviews, it offers insights into how drug markets work and the reasons why some markets are violent, and others not.
Daudelin's research focuses on property rights and conflict, Brazilian foreign policy and international relations in the Americas, as well as crime and violence in Latin America. He will be joined on stage by Prof. Joao Velloso of the Faculty of Law (University of Ottawa) and Rob Boyd, director of the Oasis Drug Treatment Program at the Sandy Hill Community Health Centre.
This event is part of FPA Research Month and the Ottawa International Writer's Festival.
