INACIPE, an Agency of the Attorney General of the Republic of Mexico, organized a special event on June 9-10 to celebrate the contributions of Irvin Waller who has actively promoted effective violence prevention in Mexico and Latin America. The Canadian Embassy attended the event.
INACIPE translated and published four of Irvin Waller´s recent books in Spanish. Two of these works influenced the current Mexican President to adopt violence prevention as a priority and spearheaded the development of a Mexican law on crime prevention. The other two books on victims’ rights have also shaped a national victims’ law and the direction of the victims’ rights policies in Mexico.
