Las altas tasas de crimen y violencia son dos de los principales problemas que afectan a los ciudadanos de América Latina y el Caribe, por lo cual las políticas públicas de seguridad ciudadana y justicia se encuentran priorizados en las agendas de los gobiernos de la región. Para mejorar la efectividad de estas políticas es imprescindible contar con una sociedad civil informada que vele porque los derechos sociales se respeten y el estado de derecho se cumpla bajo un régimen de gobernanza democrática.

Como promover o uso de evidências científicas para reduzir a criminalidade e a violência?
O mundo está cheio de políticas públicas baseadas em boas intenções, mas que nem sempre geram resultados positivos, que desperdiçam recursos públicos valiosos e que, por vezes, podem até piorar a situação que estavam tentando resolver. É por isso que o trabalho profissional não pode se basear apenas em boas intenções. Um médico, por exemplo,

Leaders in Citizen Security and Justice Management for the Caribbean
The high rates of crime and violence are two of the main challenges that affect the citizens of Latin America and the Caribbean. That is why the public policies of citizen security are prioritized in the agendas of the governments of the region. To improve the effectiveness of these policies, it is essential to have an informed civil society making sure that social rights are respected and that the rule of law is fulfilled under a regime of democratic governance. Hence the importance of making this material available to the general public, which allows knowing both the theoretical concepts and what is currently being done in practice in terms of the implementation of citizen security and justice policies in the region.

Taxation when Markets are not Competitive: Evidence from a Loan Tax
We study the interaction of market structure and tax-and-subsidy strategies utilizing pass-through estimates from the unexpected introduction of a loan tax in Ecuador, a quantitative model, and a comprehensive commercial-loan dataset. Our model generalizes bank competition theories, including Bertrand-Nash competition, credit rationing, and joint-maximization. While we find the loan tax is distortionary, neglecting the possibility of non-competitive lending inflates estimated tax deadweight loss by 80% because non-competitive banks internalize some of the burden. Conversely, subsidies are less effective in non-competitive settings. If competition were stronger, tax revenue would be 10% lower. The findings suggest that policymakers should consider market structure in tax-and-subsidy strategies.

The Promises of Digital Bank Accounts for Low-income Individuals
The push for adopting digital modes of payment rests on three promises: increased efficiency of transactions, increased financial inclusion, and improvements in the financial well-being of low-income individuals. We experimentally test the extent to which these promises are fulfilled. We exploit the random assignment into an intervention to encourage direct deposits of recurrent government benefits into digital bank accounts in Colombia. Switching from cash to direct deposits reduces disbursement errors and increases access to benefits among eligible beneficiaries. It also increases the ownership of bank accounts, the demand for formal loans, and loan take-up among individuals without a financial history. However, we do not find evidence of improvements in financial well-being across any of our metrics.

MICI Reflections: Access to Remedy and Dispute Resolution: Contributions to the Conversation Based on MICI's Experience
The notion of remedy has gained importance and become a central issue on the international development agenda, despite accountability mechanisms and financial institutions have been subject to continued criticism in terms of their ability to provide effective remedy for communities claiming to be affected by development projects. This note aims to explore the role of alternative dispute resolution in access to remedy, and to specifically examine the contributions that MICIs Consultation Phase has made in providing solutions to communities that believe they have been adversely affected by IDB Group-financed development projects between 2017 and 2022.

Economia do Comportamento para Melhores Políticas Públicas
Prazo de inscrição: 27 de Agosto, 2024Nos últimos anos, cada vez mais governos e formuladores de políticas têm percebido que, para serem verdadeiramente bem-sucedidas, as políticas públicas devem considerar a forma como os indivíduos se comportam e tomam decisões. Com essa premissa, este curso se propõe a ensinar os conceitos fundamentais da economia do comportamento e como estes diferem da visão do modelo econômico tradicional. O curso também introduz ferramentas que podem ajudar a promover a tomada de melhores decisões e apresenta casos reais de intervenções em que esses “empurrões” foram usados para aprimorar as políticas públicas em países da América Latina e de outras partes do mundo.
