Publications on CP-UDP


[2014] A European bibliographic overview across the language barriers, including some questions on terminology. In the EU COST action TU 1203 (about CPTED in Europe) work is ready on national CPTED bibliographies: one ‘top ten’ for each participating country and another ‘top ten’ for the most popular and most used international books. In 22 European countries a survey among national experts was done resulting in a national bibliographies and one European list. The national bibliographies reveal a rich picture of literature in Europe on Crime prevention Through Urban Design and Planning (CP-UDP) than was apparent previously. The 22 delivered bibliographies, including abstracts, contained 190 publications. This first European overview of CP-UDP literature shows that 19 European countries have either CP‐UDP guidelines, policy documents or both. Around 40 guidelines and 30 policy documents were listed by contributors and more than 80 scientific publications and 40 other types of publications. Analysis of the bibliographies has made it possible to paint a picture of a CP-UDP wave in Europe starting in the UK in the 1970s and reaching the southern and eastern part of Europe around 2000 or later. The international bibliography shows that in Europe a certain amount of knowledge is shared in common. For example, publications by Newman, Crowe, Jacobs, Jeffery, Kitchen, Colquhoun, Kelling and others. At least 38 publications can be considered as 'common knowledge'.
