Meeting Description: 

Diana Esther Guzmán is a JSD candidate at Stanford Law School and Associate Professor at the National University of Colombia. She holds a JSM from Stanford University as well as an L.L.M., an advanced degree in Constitutional Law, and a J.D. from the National University (Colombia). Her work focuses on sociology of law and human rights, historical and political sociology, and gender issues, with a focus in Latin America.

Before coming to Stanford she was a Senior Researcher at the Center for the Study of Law, Justice, and Society (Dejusticia), a leading think tank in her country, where she conducted multiple research projects on human rights, with a special emphasis on women’s rights. Diana has been lecturer in areas of constitutional law, legal theory and human rights in several Colombian universities.

Her current research at Stanford asks for the role of the law in transitional processes and its capacity to achieve transformative effects. Her publications include “Redressing which is irreparable? Sexual violence in the Colombian Armed Conflict” (2012, in Spanish), and “In search of a transformative and participatory concept or reparations in the context of transitional justice” (with Rodrigo Uprimny, 2010, in Spanish).

Diana has received scholarships from the National Department for Science Technology and Innovation (Colombia), and Stanford University. She is currently a fellow at the Stanford Center on International Conflict and Negotiation and at the Haas Center for Public Service.

This documentary provides an inside look at the political asylum application process in the USA. The questions at stake are relevant today: who is a refugee? Who gets asylum?

Diana Guzman will provide opening remarks that situate these questions within today's legal and political landscape.
