Role in the project

As Work Package leaders for WP2 our tasks include producing a 'state of the art' Review of knowledge and learning about urban security and crime prevention across the last 30 years in the four priority areas of: (1) Juvenile delinquency; (2) Trafficking and organised crime; (3) Radicalisation; and (4) Public space issues. Allied to this will be: (i) the collection of best practices, tools and institutional barriers to prevent and tackle urban security issues; (ii) a critical review of ‘what works’ and needs assessment; and (iii) a 'Roadmap' for the improvement and definition of tools.
