ICPC held its 6th Annual Crime Prevention Colloquium in Canberra, Australia on the 14-15th September 2006. The Colloquium was hosted by the Australian Government, one of ICPC’s member governments, and took place at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra. The theme of the two-day event was: “Communities in Action for Crime Prevention”. It included a focus on recent developments for a number of ‘communities of interest’, community participation and integration, ethno-cultural minorities, women’s safety, participation and inclusion of youth, youth gangs and public space, and the role of the private sector.

The Colloquium brought together up to 170 participants, including both international and Australian policy makers, practitioners and researchers involved in the crime prevention field. International participants included those drawn from ICPC's wide network of member governments and organizations working in the crime prevention field.
