According to the bank, the objective of the project consists in building a world-class prediction model that can assist stakeholders like law enforcement agencies or victim service providers in identifying the victims who are truly at greatest risk from among many victims who appear, a priori, to be at risk of domestic violence.
Building upon the experience of the Chicago Crime Lab (CCL), the research team would engage with 2-3 jurisdictions in Latin America (cities or central governments) in order to build a state-of-the-art risk tool to identify victims of domestic violence who are at greatest risk of experiencing repeat victimization.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
