Dra. Lucía Dammert habla sobre desarme, control de armas y prevención de la violencia y el delito en Latino América
Dr. Lucía Dammert argues that the prevalence of firearms is a significant challenge for the prevention of violence in Latin America. To address the problem, she recommends an integrated campaign against the constant use of firearms in the region that includes academics, civil society, and governments. More specifically, Dr. Dammert urges Latin American governments to limit arms trafficking and more diligently regulate arms ownership by private businesses. She maintains that community campaigns are essential to change the perception that violence is the only way to resolve conflicts. Citizens must prioritize collective security that ensures the well-being of the entire community over temporary, individual security, which only further divides the community. Dr. Dammert is optimistic that violence will decrease as citizens organize themselves around programs that emphasize peaceful conflict resolution.
