          There continues to be a clear evolution in knowledge and practice about crime prevention. Increasing numbers of
          countries and cities around the world see safety and security for their citizens as essential for development, and for the
          achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. They are embedding prevention strategies into their legislation and
          administrative structures. This persistent rise in the number of national crime prevention strategies gives a clear signal of
          its centrality in public policy within the country, and its growing presence as a global guideline. The opening plenary
          “National crime prevention strategies” will present a series of national strategies and its developments, challenges and
          methods of implementation. It will also offer the space for debate on the importance of prevention strategies from various
          perspectives.

              CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND CRIME PREVENTION
              In recent years, international organizations have become increasingly concerned about the effectiveness of criminal justice
              responses to high rates of crime, which can dramatically influence society’s perceptions of security and trust in the system.
              This link has drawn attention to the importance of legitimate and effective criminal justice institutions, the integrity and
              accountability of authorities, and the treatment of victims and offenders. Such conditions can directly affect the outcomes
              and success of crime prevention initiatives, whereby justice and prevention are inter-linked and mutually dependant. Many
              state and non-state actors (i.e. NGOs, etc.) have developed multi-sectoral approaches that integrate crime prevention and
              the criminal justice system in innovative ways. The workshop on “Criminal justice and crime prevention” will explore

              PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS AND CRIME PREVENTION
              [Spanish translation available

              In recent years, more and more companies have sought new ways to contribute to citizens’ wellbeing and quality of life.
              We are witnessing a growth in the engagement of the private sector in actions addressing social problems and ways of
              contributing to the development of communities, cities and countries. Safety has been a central focus of many public-
              private partnerships, suggesting a formal collaboration between public sector agencies (i.e. government), the civil society
              and the private sector, aimed at dealing with rising crime and violence in expanding urban areas worldwide. The private
              sector is in a unique position to contribute to crime prevention, and therefore the workshop “Public-private partnerships
              and crime prevention” will provide the opportunity to highlight innovative partnerships from around the world, and to

              EVIDENCE AND POLICY MAKING
              Evidence is crucial in assessing the progress of initiatives, monitoring budgets, evaluating effectiveness, and determining
              future activities. Research plays a significant role in the production of evidence through evaluation, and evidence-based
              research is an important part of building bridges with policy making. While the production of evidence is a growing part
              of project management, translating evidence into knowledge for the purposes of influencing policy and making it more
              accessible are ongoing challenges. Considering the importance of evidence for prevention, the workshop “Evidence and
              policy making” will review several innovative ways of measuring crime and crime prevention, and will outline the
              challenges involved from different contexts in terms of how to transform evidence into policy.

              LOCAL GOVERNANCE AND SAFETY
              One of the big gaps in crime prevention work historically is to properly interrogate the dependencies between local
              governance issues and the provision of local safety to communities, villages, towns and cities. This session will offer an
              opportunity to explore the way in which the design and management of human settlements is essential to the provision of
              safety. Discussion will explore the extent to which crime prevention should be seen as an objective when addressing basic
              services such as sanitation, water and electricity, access to education, health, livelihoods, reliable transport and to other
              opportunities such as for play and family leisure, for spaces in which women, the elderly and other disadvantaged groups

              THE ROLE OF POLICING IN CRIME PREVENTION
              Police services worldwide continue to be key actors in crime prevention. Since 1996, the role of the police in crime
                                                                                            th
              prevention has been a core area of work for ICPC, which has included its 7 Colloquium, various seminars, comparative
              research and international compendia. Prevention increasingly plays a role in policing practices as a means of
              implementing alternative strategies in dealing with changing crime rates. Some examples include providing a visible
              presence through community policing practices, building effective cross-sector partnerships, as well as shifting traditional
              policing structures by providing courses to officers. The workshop on “the role of policing in crime prevention” will explore
              how different police services have better responded to crime in terms of promoting safety as a means of strengthening
              their prevention capacity.

              CITIES, DEVELOPMENT AND ARMED VIOLENCE
              [Spanish translation available

              The 21st Century is the ‘century of the city’ and half of the world’s population resides in urban areas. While urbanization
              has brought opportunities to dwellers, cities are feeling the weight to accommodate residents. The result in many cases
              has been weak provision of security, sprawling informal settlements, and heightened exposure and risk of armed violence.
              Attention towards urban armed violence is gaining momentum and initiatives are providing opportunities to advance
              dialogue and policy. Prevention as an approach is securing a place within national and international discussion and course
              of action. The Colloquium provides a space to continue the work from the 2nd Ministerial Review Conference on the
              Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development. This workshop will outline some prevention efforts at the city

Joseph Dube is the Africa Coordinator of the international action network on small arms (IANSA). A
South African activist for social justice, he started working on preventing gun violence in 1994,

people to find alternatives to violence by declaring gun-free zones, enabling them to reclaim spaces
such as schools, health facilities and shops. During the campaign for a tough new gun law, Joseph
bridged the gap between communities and parliament, empowering people from marginalised
communities to understand how Parliament works, and how to make a submission or presentation.

to coordinate campaigns including Stop Violence Against Women, Refugees and MSP (Control Arms)
in South Africa, Sudan and Swaziland. He joined the IANSA secretariat in February 2005.
