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 to 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 about effective violence prevention influenced the priority of the current Mexican President on violence prevention as well as the Mexican law on crime prevention. The other two have had some influence on the national victim law and the direction of the victim rights policies in Mexico.
