Leaders in Citizen Security and Justice Management

The increasing rates of violence and crime are the two main challenges that the Caribbean and Latin American countries face. That’s why there’s a growing need of prioritising citizen security over other agendas. It is essential to have a society educated in social rights and law's nuances to make informed policies. For achieving this effect and imparting the necessary knowledge, edX has developed the Leaders in Citizen Security online course, in collaboration with Inter-American Development Bank.

The Leaders in Citizen Security training covers both the theoretical and practical concepts of citizen security, and how justice policies are carried out in the south-American region. The programme also goes through crime deterrence, social rehabilitation of prisoners, law enforcement, and crime judicialization. It is expected that this programme will develop awareness within authorities, academics, public officials, journalists, and civil society regarding citizen justice.

The Leaders in Citizen Security programme was jointly developed by IDB and the consortium of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, FADISMA in Brazil, and universities of Chile. This 10-week programme is a self-paced one, which requires four-five hours of diligent study every week. You can also add a verified certificate if you wish to improve your credentials or look for jobs in the social science field.

AGRIMONITOR: Agricultural Policy in Latin America and the Caribbean

Every consumer knows the price of the food items he/she purchases and consumes every day. But what they do not know is why these items cost as much as they do, and why the same product’s price varies from one country to the next. Several factors determine this price, but perhaps the most critical factor is the country’s Agricultural Policy. If you want to learn about the Caribbean and Latin American countries’ agricultural policies, take the AGRIMONITOR course by edX.

With the AGRIMONITOR programme, you will learn how to use the AGRIMONITOR, a database that contains information about 24 Latin American and Caribbean countries.
