WORLD: we got this


In conversation about the war on drugs in Guatemala

Season 3, Ep. 12

With the mass incarceration of women quintupling in Guatemala as a result of the 'war on drugs', Gloriana Rodriguez Alvarez, PhD candidate and human rights advocate, asks how the country's policies and institutions perpetuate social prejudices and impact marginalised communities.

In this episode, Gloriana speaks with David Mwambari, Lecturer in African Security and Leadership Studies at King’s African Leadership Centre, about her research, her time interviewing inmates in Guatemalan prisons and the importance of being an empathetic researcher.
