Time for the urban safety discussion to move on?
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Today the safety and security of residents and property has become an increasingly serious topic considering immigration and terrorism threats in Western cities. At the same time urban managers look for ways to be successful in the ongoing competition between cities. This paper looks at various strands of this discussion, and proposes a way to move it onwards. The main principle here is to take distance from the dominating, but arguably overdue paradigm based on liberal and multicultural cities. While the study borrows arguments from both sides of Atlantic, some empirical evidence from Finland is also presented.
