Julián Durazo-Herrmann conducts a workshop for journalists on the Mexican political system at Universidad Veracruzana
Julián Durazo-Hermann, a professor of political science at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), ÉRIGAL member, and a specialist in the role of local media in democratization in Latin America, will be conducting a workshop at the Universidad Veracruzana as part of the journalism and political communication strategy class.
The workshop, titled "Introduction to the Mexican Political System: Clues for Communicators," is designed to analyze the legal framework in which journalistic activity is conducted today in Mexico. The Faculty of Communication (Facico) at Universidad Veracruzana is hosting the workshop.
Guadalupe H. Mar Vázquez, a professor at Facico, emphasized that the course will equip journalists, students, graduates, and teachers with the necessary tools to understand current issues, such as the separation of powers. "To practice opinion journalism, one must have a broad background that allows communicators to develop their skills adequately," she said.
The sessions will take place from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the multipurpose room of the Faculty of Communication. On Thursday, May 11, the theme will be "State, Regime, and Government." On Thursday, May 18, the topic will be "The Three Powers of the Union," and on May 25, the workshop will conclude with "Democracy at Work."
Professor Julián Durazo-Herrmann is currently studying the cases of Bahia (Brazil) and Veracruz (Mexico).
