Abstract

Medellín ha sido una de las ciudades más violentas del mundo, pero la criminalidad ha venido reduciéndose en los últimos años. La continuidad del sendero descendiente depende de la efectividad de las políticas públicas. Esta investigación evalúa políticas públicas, tanto preventivas como punitivas, usando un modelo en dinámica de sistemas que considera la carrera criminal y la teoría económica del crimen. Los ejercicios de simulación sugieren la necesidad de reducir el crecimiento de la población susceptible de convertirse en criminales, aumentar los efectivos de la fuerza pública e incrementar la duración promedio de las sentencias. Esta aproximación metodológica puede ser extrapolada a casos similares de los sistemas sociales
