Democracy, Institutions, Security and Justice

ABOUT THE PROJECT

This group generates research that strengthens democracy and its political and judicial institutions through identification and analysis of the conditions and institutions that promote or limit the consolidation of democracy. The group also supports institutions and public administration processes that improve efficiency and reliability by designing and implementing public policies that promote the constitutional rule of law, especially in the areas of research, administration and justice.

As a group, we seek to influence the public agenda, improve democracy, increase the efficiency of the public administration and consolidate the new criminal justice system.

These goals are pursued through the interdisciplinary study of economics, international relations, engineering (computer science, processes, industry, robotics), communication and pedagogy.
