Hannover; a German case study


[2017] This German case study is focused on examples of interdisciplinary planning for new developments and constructions in Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany. Lower Saxony represents best practice in crime prevention through urban design and planning among the German federal states. The structural requirement for the new planning culture was formed by the 'Security Partnership in Urban Planning and Design in Lower Saxony'. This is an interdisciplinary network of experts and associations whose main activity is crime prevention through environmental design. This approach of a prevention-oriented partnership and network represents the contemporary stream of New Public Governance that is characterized by inter-organizational relationships, where trust and relational capital act as the core governance mechanisms.
