Violence and inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean

In this video, Aldo Magoga, consultant on issues of violence, citizen security and Human Rights, offers a panorama on the link between inequalities and violence in Latin America and the Caribbean. This piece is an excellent gateway to understand the correlation between two critical and complex realities, which make our region the most unequal and the most violent on the planet.

Magoga exposes here a correlation index between indicators. Among others, he explains how the poverty gaps affect the number of homicides and femicides, and the existing triangulation between the Human Development Index, urban and rural poverty gaps, and violence in the region.
