The Uruguay Youth Violence Prevention Project aims to provide the authorities in Uruguay with the empirical foundations for an evidence-based policy to reduce youth violence. Its core element is a large-scale victimization and self-report delinquency survey with 2500 adolescents in the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo. The study resulted in a report to the government of Uruguay that comprises findings on the basic distribution of violent perpetration and victimization amongst adolescents, core risk factors associated with violence, and strategic recommendations on a future violence prevention policy.
