Women Leaders Against Crime: Challenges and Solutions in a Pandemic World

07 April 2021

The first of a series of online meetings that we have called “La hora de EL PAcCTO” has begun. This is a space for reflection between the European Union (EU) and Latin America (LA) to highlight the priority issues of the EU and LA in the field of security, justice and prison systems. We will do so through the protagonists or experts in the field from the two regions.

The first chapter is entitled “Women Leaders Against Crime: Challenges and Solutions in a Pandemic World”. With four women leaders we will talk about women’s leadership and how the health crisis has affected their management. We will also look to the future to analyse the challenges of the post-pandemic world and the role of women in leading institutions against organised crime.

The debate will end with a two-minute reflection in which each participant will have the opportunity to launch a final message.

Via Zoom and live on our social networks

Participating in the presentation will be Anna Terrón, director of the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Public Administration and Policies (FIIAPP) and Martin Seychell, deputy director general INTPA.

Debating will be:

  • Alexandra Jour-Schroeder. Deputy Director General of FISMA of the European Commission.
    Rosa Icela Rodríguez Velázquez.  Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection of Mexico
    Cecilia Pérez Rivas. Minister of Justice of the Republic of Paraguay.
    Diana Salazar. Attorney General of Ecuador
  • Luísa Proença. Deputy National Director. Judicial Police in Portugal

Antonella Cavallari, secretary General of the Organizzazione Internazionale Italo-Latino America (IILA) will close the event.

There will be 60 minutes of debate through the Zoom platform, which can be followed live on the YouTube and Facebook channels of EL PAcCTO. There will also be simultaneous translation into English.

The time has come for EL PAcCTO to achieve an alliance, a pact between the two regions on issues of concern to public institutions and, in general, to all citizens.
