Registered author(s):

    Medellín ha sido una de las ciudades más violentasdel mundo, pero la criminalidad ha venido reduciéndoseen los últimos años. La continuidad delsendero descendiente depende de la efectividadde las políticas públicas. Esta investigación evalúapolíticas públicas, tanto preventivas como punitivas,usando un modelo en dinámica de sistemas queconsidera la carrera criminal y la teoría económicadel crimen. Los ejercicios de simulación sugieren lanecesidad de reducir el crecimiento de la poblaciónsusceptible de convertirse en criminales, aumentarlos efectivos de la fuerza pública e incrementar laduración promedio de las sentencias. Esta aproximaciónmetodológica puede ser extrapolada a casossimilares de los sistemas sociales.
