Violent Crime in Developing Countries

This project will produce a systematic review of the effects of justice system interventions on violent crime in developing countries. This review has been funded by 3ie, the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation, an organisation that focuses on using evidence evaluation to improve lives in low and middle income countries. In addition to reviewing the evidence on policing interventions, a further systematic review and meta-analysis that focuses specifically on the effect of community-oriented policing interventions on interpersonal violent crime in developing countries will be conducted, and and the tile has been registered with the Campbell Collaboration.
