URBAN MANAGER FOR SECURITY SAFETY AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT

518620-LLP-1-2011-1-IT-LEONARDO-LMP

 

The URBIS project - Urban Manager for Security Safety and Crisis Mangement - questions the possibilities for ‘urban security management’ given the increasing freedom of movement of people, goods and services across national borders, an increasingly austere economic climate and consequent pressures on governing capacity in European cities. 

The distinctiveness of the current situation is captured in the idea of ‘acting locally while thinking globally’ about threats to the freedom and security of European citizens.

In particular the project explores which public authorities are empowered and legally obliged to manage urban security, what skills and competencies they have to undertake this responsibility and what educational and training provision currently exists in support of their work.

DURATION                                         Start: 01/11/2011- End: 30/04/2014

On the basis of this review, the project will consider any further need to professionalise this area of work. It will then design and trial a postgraduate-level programme of teaching and learning emphasising a comparative understanding of urban security in Europe and questioning the possibilities for exchanging expertise and experience amongst public authorities.
