The correlation between politics, violence and security in Latin America
Under the coordination of the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences (FLACSO) Headquarters Ecuador and with the support of the International Development Research Council (IDRC) of Canada, the research project “Exploring the Political Economy of Violence in the Americas” was carried out between 2014 and 2017. The results of the project were recently published in a book, which addresses the issue of violence in Latin America from several thematic axes: politics, actors, security, gender, electoral offers and from the experiences of several countries in the region, among which are Mexico, El Salvador, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador.
The intention of this publication is to analyze the new and different motivations of violence in Latin America, its characteristics and the possibility of confronting it with public policies and innovative citizen behaviour. The reading and study of each article in the book provide an overview of the correlation between politics, violence and security in Latin America.
