CitizenSec & HumanDev Latin Am
Although Latin America today shows stronger and more integrated economies, less poverty, more consolidated democracies, citizen insecurity has become an urgent challenge for human development in the region. Citizens perceive crime and violence as the main obstacle to their opportunities and to freedom from want and freedom from fear. This course provides the conceptual, practical and analytical framework to understand the interplay between security and human development. Participants explore the root causes, the manifestations as well as the programs and policies that countries in the region are implementing to face the challenges.
