This conference is organized to recognize Wayne Cornelius for being awarded the Aguila Azteca, the highest honor bestowed by the Mexican government. It is an informal gathering of friends, mentors, students and scholars who have been marked by the contributions of his work. There is no cost of admission. The event is open to the public.
For almost four decades Wayne's scholarship has decisively impacted the study of the politics of development, migration, democratization, the rule of law and social change in Mexico. He has also been a builder of institutions to facilitate dialogue, public policy engagement and academic exchange. This has deservedly led to his award of the Aguila Azteca, the highest honor bestowed by the Mexican government.
The conference is organized around work in progress, personal reflections and roundtable discussions, rather than a formal format of written papers and assigned discussants. It is an opportunity to share with Wayne some of our work and reflections, and to collectively critique and learn from each other.
