Urban Crime and Violence Prevention (Facilitated)

Coming Soon

Urban crime and violence constitute a serious impediment to economic and social development globally. In many urban centers across the world, high crime and violence rates are undermining growth, threatening human welfare and impeding social development.

Within this context, the aim of this course is to enhance the capacity of communities and local governments to design, implement and manage effective and sustainable crime and violence prevention and reduction strategies.

This course offers a total of 10 modules. Six conceptual modules introduce the subject and examine the conceptual and theoretical frameworks of crime and violence, situational crime and violence prevention with an emphasis on the methodology Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), as well as the various types of social prevention (intra-family, youth and school-based violence prevention, and community/problem-oriented policing). The conceptual modules are followed by four practical modules, where participants learn to design, implement and evaluate a crime and violence prevention strategy through a five-stage methodology and a series of hands-on, real-life exercises, diagnostics, development of multi-sectoral partnerships, community participation, design of a communication campaign and action plan, and monitoring and evaluation.

Target Audience

Urban practitioners, policymakers and city managers of various backgrounds and disciplines who are working on crime and violence prevention in Africa and the English-speaking Caribbean, as well as civil society organizations, the private sector, academia and international organizations.
