On May 23, a panel sponsored by IPA and J-PAL LAC convened the Secretaries of Security from Colombia's three largest cities—Bogotá, Medellín, and Cali—and Universidad EAFIT economist Catalina Goméz Toro to discuss and debate policy strategies for public safety. Sebastian Chaskel, Director of IPA's Peace and Recovery program, moderated the discussion.
The panel was convened as part of the LACEA Network on Inequality and Poverty's America Latina Crime and Policy Network workshop. This workshop was part of the Research Institute for Development, Growth, and Economics (RIDGE)'s May Forum 2019.
Sebastian discusses two takeaways from the event in this blog post.
