ICPC has had to change the dates of its upcoming 15th Anniversary, as a result of the high volume of international events and a large Congress taking place in Montreal at that time in October. This occurrence will place severe restrictions and limitations on international flights and hotel accommodations. After examining alternative possibilities, and given various limitations, we would like to inform you that the 15th Anniversary will now take place on December 7th, 8th, and 9th, 2009. We look forward to welcoming you to the celebration of ICPCâ€™s 15th Anniversary.
CRIME PREVENTION ACROSS THE WORLD:
Taking Stock, Evaluation, and Future Perspectives
Centre Mont-Royal, Montreal
Over the last 15 years, the International Centre for the Prevention of Crime has been at the heart of an international movement aimed at promoting research-based policies and practices that work to prevent crime and build community safety.
The field of crime prevention is still quite relatively new in comparison to other areas of research enquiry and policy development. Over the last 3 decades, countries have witnessed many shifts in relation to crime prevention policy and practice including in leadership, field of action (situational, social, etc), priority areas, implementation, evaluation, and the advent of international norms and standards to guide action. The evaluation of policies and practices, and ICPCâ€™s recent International Report on Crime Prevention and Community Safety 2008 allows us to identify some of the main trends and geographical disparities.
To mark its 15th anniversary, ICPCâ€™s colloquium will focus on the evolution of crime prevention policy and practice and a consideration of issues on the horizon within and between countries. We aim to increase awareness about the successes and challenges of developing and implementing strategic and effective crime prevention in urban and rural areas. The event will also discuss the impacts of issues such as urbanization, migration and the â€œprivatization of securityâ€. ICPCâ€™s event takes place on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the First European and North American Conference on Urban Safety and Crime Prevention, held in Montreal, Canada in 1989 which led to the founding of the Centre.
Registration details will follow on ICPCâ€™s website at: www.crime-prevention-intl.org .
