The Global Village Museum’s latest exhibit: Central America ~ Bridging Cultures, will be ending on Sept. 21. Before it closes, Political Science professor, Stephen Mumme, will be giving a talk entitled: Outmigration and Political Development in the Northern Triangle on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 5 – 7 p.m.
“The current surge in Central American asylum-seeking migration to the United States has roots in decades of civil conflict and economic underdevelopment in much of the region. This presentation looks at the situation in the Northern Triangle’s sending countries of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. The enduring problems of governance contribute to social despair and the willingness to accept the considerable risks of migrating north with hopes of obtaining asylum in the United States.”
