3. QUERY FROM GSN’ER TOM BOERMAN ON SCOLARS WORKING ON ISSUES RELATED TO VIOLENCE AND MIGRATION

I'm interested in connecting with anyone interested in conducting assessment on the broad issue of violence (against children, women, gang and crime related, human rights defenders, activists, state sponsored, etc) and submitting manuscripts for publication. I'd also like to connect with anyone else involved in issues around migration.

Saludos,

4. JOURNALIST QUERY REGARDING CHILDREN who have migrated to the U.S. AND WHAT face when they return to Guatemala.

Looking for children who have returned to Guatemala in the past few years or plan to return soon

 

I am a journalist working on a story about the issues children who have migrated to the U.S. face when they return to Guatemala. I am based in California, but will be traveling to Guatemala in July to report on the topic thanks to a grant from the International Reporting Project. If you know of any children who are in the US but may soon have to return to Guatemala, children in Guatemala who returned from the US in recent years or families in the US who have a child who returned to Guatemala I would be very interested in speaking with them. I understand it is a very sensitive topic and I take the safety and welfare of my subjects very seriously. I can be reached at kcengel@pobox.com or in the US by phone at 502.216.8215 or on skype under bascocat.  Thank you, Katya Cengel, katyacengel.com
