A new report by the Igarapé Institute, a Brazil-based think tank focused on security and development issues says that “The sheer dimensions of homicidal violence are breathtaking.”

Latin America suffers 33% of the world’s homicides despite having only 8% of its population. One-quarter of all global homicides are concentrated in four countries – Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.
