Security and Urban Design

Improving Urban Security Through Environmental Design

UNICRI, in collaboration with the Sense-able City Lab of the Massachusetts’s Institute of Technology (MIT), implemented a research project aimed at supporting policy-makers to design and implement effective urban security, crime prevention and criminal justice policies based on sustainable urban design. The objectives of the project included assessing the impact of sustainable urban design on the security and rule of law in contemporary cities.

Within the framework of the project, UNICRI published the report  New Energy for Urban Security – Improving Urban Security Through Green Environmental Design.
