EU STREET VIOLENCE project inspires new Manifesto « Security, Democracy and Cities »



The Manifesto of Aubervilliers and Saint-Denis is a political platform on urban security which brings together all the values and principles that form the foundations of Euroepan Forum for Urban Security and its members’ actions. It constitutes a continuation of the principles and recommendations of the Naples Manifesto (2000) and the Saragossa Manifesto (2006), yet it also forms a future plan of action for local authorities that can be followed during the years to come.


The Manifesto is the outcome of the international conference “Security, Democracy and Cities: The Future of Prevention”, which brought together 900 participants from 40 countries 12-14 December 2012 in Aubervilliers and Saint-Denis, France.


It contains thematic recommendations on 19 central issues of urban security. The recommendations on collective violence directly build on the insights gained through the EU STREET VIOLENCE project, many of which have in this way become political recommendation of the European local authorities.
