México Evalúa, Centro de Análisis de Políticas Públicas A.C.
- Ciudad de México
México Evalúa is an independent think tank that provides evidence on the quality and effectiveness of Mexican public policies by analyzing their design, monitoring their implementation, and evaluating their results. To do so, México Evalúa´s staff produces indicators, analysis and proposals for policy improvements.
México Evalúa focuses its work on two major fields: one the one hand, public safety and justice; on the other, effectiveness of public expenditure, accountability and the fight against corruption.
The Public Safety and Justice Program produces multidisciplinary analysis and evidence on public safety, crime prevention, victimization, effectiveness of the criminal justice system and social rehabilitation. Throughout its studies, the Program has sought to measure the incidence of violence and crime, in order to understand the different circumstances and risk factors for crime, analyze and propose improvements in crime prevention programs, evaluate the scope and limits of the judicial and penitentiary systems, as well as its impact on citizens’ human rights.
The Public Expenditure and Accountability Program monitors the use of public resources, analyzes the budget design process and its supplementary arrangements during the fiscal year, focuses on the effectiveness of public investment in infrastructure, evaluates the reforms proposed by the different political parties on transparency and the fight against corruption and proposes regulatory improvements towards an effective accountability.
