The final conference of the COST action “Crime Prevention through Urban Design & Planning” takes place in Athens, Greece, 24th – 25th November 2016.*
The conference is free of charge, but registration is required. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The objective of this COST Action is to contribute to structuring existing knowledge and to developing innovative approaches on how to build more secure and safe cities. Studies have shown that there is a correlation between the structure and organization of urban space and crime: new criminological theory supports this point of view. The Justice and Home Affairs Council of the EU has underlined that crime prevention through design is a successful and effective strategy for crime prevention and needs to be supported. Despite this, new projects are being implemented all over Europe without considering safety criteria, creating urban areas where crime or fear of crime can make life difficult.
Details on the conference location, speakers and themes as well as hotel recommendations can be found here.
The Journal of Place Management and Development has dedicated the Special Issue 8.2 to the conference theme.
