Tec, USAID join forces for human rights

A new “memorandum of understanding” between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Tec de Monterrey looks to “generate academic opportunities for the professionalization of the work of those who defend human rights, particularly the rights of journalists.”

The move has a pronounced resonance for Mexico, a country where killings of reporters are becoming disturbingly routine.

USAID Mexico Director Elizabeth Warfield and Tec Monterrey Social Sciences Dean Alejandro Poire were present at the June 11 signing ceremony.
