Research area:

Redesigning urban security policies

In order to initiate an effective transformation in urban security policies, the EU-funded IcARUS project aims to address urban security issues by proposing an integrated, evidence-based and multi-stakeholder approach.

This approach will rethink tools for urban security policy and will be based on a vision which combines prevention and sanctions aimed at enhancing social cohesion.

Eventually, this vision will help shape a common approach of security in the European Union. The project will encourage local communities to become an active part of multi-sectoral governance to improve urban safety and capitalise on social and technological innovation.




This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research & innovation programme under Grant Agreement no 882749
