Guillermo Trejo, assistant professor of political science, Duke University
Trejo specializes in comparative politics (social conflict, religion, ethnicity, and democratization) and Latin American politics and society. His primary research analyzes the impact of religious competition and multi-party politics on the dynamics of social protest, rebellion, and inter-communal violence among ethnic minorities in Mexico. He is also working on state repression and human rights violations of political dissidents and religious minorities during the Mexican transition to democracy. His work combines quantitative methods with analytic process-tracing and case studies.
