The DPS, with the support of the Open Society Institute, jointly organized with FLACSO-Chile a second Meeting of Caribbean Academics and Experts on Public Security: Looking ahead towards MISPA III held in Montego Bay, Jamaica, on May 19 and 20, 2010.

The purpose of this meeting was to analyze the MISPA process, the different document produced and the initiatives implemented by the OAS General Secretariat  since the adoption of the Commitment of Public Security in the Americas by the Ministers during MISPA I, in Mexico, 2008, and the adoption of the Consensus of Santo Domingo on Public Security during the MISPA II, in Dominican Republic, 2009.  The recommendations emerging from this meeting will be presented during the Meeting of Experts on Public Security in preparation for MISPA III which will take place in Santiago, Chile at the end of 2010. 

This second meeting builds on the Meeting of Academics and Experts, convened on March 6-7, 2008 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, which focused on the prevention and control of crime and violence in the Caribbean.  It brought together a selected group of academics and experts, in order to identify and propose a series of recommendations for improving public security from a uniquely Caribbean perspective.  Two meetings of Ministers responsible for Public Security in the Americas were consequently held in Mexico in 2008 and in the Dominican Republic in 2009.
