CCI Conference: Designing Security Futures

Published 2 weeks, 3 days ago

How can we improve the way we frame and tackle security problems to make a real difference?

How can a human-centred approach improve the success of solutions?

How can European security policy be made meaningful to security practitioners and citizens?

Across the EU, how do we conceptualise and deliver security?

Join us on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 November 2021 at Le Bouche à Oreille, in the heart of Brussels, for Designing Security Futures — the final conference of the EU-funded Cutting Crime Impact (CCI) project.

CCI enabled six law enforcement agencies (LEAs) to adopt a human-centred innovation process for researching, defining, developing and demonstrating practical solutions to real problems facing police, their partners and citizens.

Designing Security Futures attendees will learn about adopting a human-centred innovation approach in the security context. Speakers will explore how the approach:

  • Enables problem framing – so the right problem is being tackled
  • Ensures feasibility – so solutions perform as intended
  • Improves implementation – so solutions suit the identified user group and context — be they police officers, policymakers or citizens.

Designing Security Futures explores and discusses the results of CCI with presentations of the eight Tools developed by LEA project partners.

Designing Security Futures addresses security policy at the EU, state and local levels, introducing a new and extended European Security Model. Policy papers will be launched in four areas: (i) Predictive Policing; (ii) Community Policing; (iii) Crime Prevention through Urban Design & Planning (CP-UDP); and (iv) Citizens' feelings of insecurity.

This event will include presentations, discussions and workshops exploring human-centred approaches to innovating security solutions and ways of integrating different strategies across EU contexts.

Registration for this conference, including lunch and refreshments, is free.
