Cooperation in Partnerships and Process of CP-UDP


[2016] This document summarizes the analysis made by a working group of the COST action TU 1203 of processes and partnerships for Crime Prevention through Urban Design and Planning (CP-UDP) based on several experiences in different countries. Building on the different case studies (see appendix) we identified and selected the main strategies used to develop the partnerships and also the main processes used to prevent crime from a CP-UDP perspective. As we will see the two key concepts – partnerships and processes – are often interwoven. When analysing the case studies and national reports we have taken in account the overall socio-political conditions and the culture of each country. This is important if we want to build a common knowledge base for a European CP-UDP strategy, though we know such a knowledge base may be difficult to be implemented in several cases, due to economic, political and cultural differences. The analysis of the collected examples may contribute to a new Integrated Network Theory of CP-UDP (Schubert, 2016).
