Understanding the drivers and impacts of homicides in 4 major Latin American cities.

Project description

Death by murder in Latin America

Latin America has a mean reputation with high homicide rates. Not surprisingly, it is often described as the world’s most murderous continent. The EU-funded HomicidesLACcities project will focus on four major Latin American cities: Bogota, Medellin, Cali and Mexico City. It will try to answer the questions: What are the key factors that appear to be driving homicides in the cities? How do homicides affect the daily behaviour of affected communities and groups, especially women. The project will also pave the way for a network of European regional urban labs dedicated to making cities safer and fairer.
