This month on Justice Matters, Yanilda María González discusses authoritarianism and policing, civil society's role in holding politicians and police accountable, and how to facilitate more representative dialogues around police reform.


González, Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, researches police violence and how it relates to democracy and citizenship, with a focus on Latin America. She discusses with Justice Matters host Sushma Raman police corruption and how it relates to police violence in both the US and Latin America, as well as the intersection of race and how policing determines your access to rights.
