Efus

Project Coordinator

The European Forum for Urban Security (Efus) is the only European network dedicated to fostering discussion, cooperation and support among local and regional authorities in the field of crime prevention and urban security. Founded in 1987, it brings together nearly 250 cities and regions from 15 countries.

Recognised for its expertise by national and European institutions, Efus is a network that represents the diversity of territories and promotes the exchange of experience between local authorities beyond political divisions, according to the principle of “cities help cities”.

What are our objectives?

  • To promote a balanced vision of urban security combining prevention, sanctions and social cohesion
  • To support local and regional authorities in the design, implementation and evaluation of their local security policy
  • To reinforce the role of local elected officials within national and European governance

What is our approach to urban security? Efus promotes a holistic approach to urban security, which involves all local actors and citizens in the co-production of policies. Efus affirms the central role of local elected representatives in this co-production approach and their role as guarantors of democratic principles. Efus considers security to be a fundamental right and therefore advocates the design of policies that guarantee the protection of human rights. Efus chooses prevention as a rational and strategic method, which promotes social cohesion in the long term. => These principles underlie Efus’ activities and are expressed in the “Security, Democracy and Cities” manifestos

What are our main work topics? The work topics that Efus covers are chosen according to member local authorities’ demand and local security issues. They are managed as part of cooperation projects that can be either local, national or European. For over 30 years, Efus has been working on cross-cutting topics linked to urban security such as nightlife, risky behaviours, gang violence, violent radicalisation, new technologies, violence against women, etc.

Role in the project

Efus is the coordinator of the project as well as leader of WP4 and 7.
