The Igarapé Institute generated impacts across all five of its key programming areas in 2018. In the citizen security area, the Institute helped drive the public security debate during presidential and state elections in Rio de Janeiro. The Institute’s drug policy program launched new data visualization tool to promote public awareness and monitor legislative innovations in the Americas. The digital rights program brought government, industry and civil society groups together to advance questions of data privacy and protection. The safer cities initiative worked with inter-city networks on issues such as urban security, migration and public health. And the building peace team developed new insights into “what works” to prevent armed conflict and expanded awareness about the nexus of climate change and organized crime.
