This interdisciplinary forum challenges the dichotomy between women’s and men’s safety by offering 2 days of discussions about individual’s right to safe public places in national and international contexts. The first day focuses on trends and patterns, country-specific ‘infrastructures’ dealing with victimisation and perceived safety and the second day is devoted to what is needed to promote change.
