Crime and Violence in Latin America and the Caribbean: Prevention and Migration

  • The Wilson Center 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW (map)

A recent study by the World Bank entitled, “Stop the Violence in Latin America: A Look at Prevention from Cradle to Adulthood” examines the nature, diversity, and complexity of violence in Latin America, and reviews ideas for reducing and preventing it.

The Wilson Center's Latin American Program and the World Bank are hosting a discussion about the persistence of violence in Latin America and the ways to prevent it, as well as how to address the instability and migration it causes. The panelists will discuss the findings of the report and how countries can help define policy approaches to dealing with the problems of widespread violence.
