A recent study conducted by two UA professors examines the violence against journalists that work along the Mexican border.
UA School of Journalism assistant professor Jeannine Relly, and associate professor Celeste González de Bustamante, conducted their research in the five border states of Mexico, which connect it to the U.S.
The study is called “Silencing Mexico: A Study of Influences on Journalists in the Northern States” and was published by the International Journal of Press/Politics in November. The publication of the study helped draw attention to areas where there is conflict due to organized crime and drug and human trafficking.
