Organised by the European Forum for Urban Security (Efus), the Government of Catalonia and the City of Barcelona, this international and interdisciplinary conference will be dedicated to the coproduction of urban security policies.
The governance of security will be one of the cross-cutting issues of this event, which will address the sharing of responsibilities across different levels of government — local, regional, national and supranational — as well as the increased involvement of the private sector and civil society, citizens in particular, in security policies.
Unique in its field, this event is geared towards all those involved in urban security: elected officials, civil servants, magistrates, security services, social workers, researchers, and representatives of the private sector and civil society. Some 800 participants from around the world are expected to attend.
The conference illustrates Efus’ vocation of working towards “cities helping cities”, fostering exchange and debate around urban security matters among locally and regionally elected officials and other stakeholders from across Europe. In addition, this event will mark the 30th anniversary of Efus’ founding in Barcelona in 1987.
The conference will result in the adoption of a Manifesto, a common policy platform drafted by participants and named after the two hosts. It will follow in the footsteps of previous Manifestos published subsequent to Efus’ international conferences of Montreal (1989), Paris (1991), Naples (2000), Saragossa (2006) and Aubervilliers & Saint-Denis (2012).
