A comparative study of the influence of the ineffectiveness of government institutions and corruption on homicide rates in Latin America
Supervision of PhD research: The research aims to identify which are the main security policies and practices used since the return of civilian governance in the region to reduce homicides. Several factors have an effect on the violence trends of a country which exceed the police jurisdiction. In that sense, the research studies the variables that have an effect in the internal security from three different levels. The micro level refers to the policing policies used in the streets. The meso level looks at the policies used at a neighbourhood or city level, which include social risk and community integration variables. The macro level focuses on the state policies, such as border control, corruption and the penitentiary and rehabilitation systems. Finally, the research will study the effect of these policies and the importance of their interaction to produce an efficient security analysis and provide accurate solution in the short and long term.
