ICPC’s 12th Colloquium: Crime Prevention Strategies in the 21st Century: Evolving Practices and Policies

Author(s) : CIPC

 

The International Centre for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) held its 12th International Colloquium, funded by Public Safety Canada and the Government of Quebec in Montreal, Canada, from November 6 to 8, 2017. Consequent to its mission to promote crime prevention as a way to ensure community safety and overall increased quality of life for all, the ICPC has hosted colloquiums of this sort every two years in several countries such as Australia, Norway, Mexico, Chile, South Africa and Italy among others. ICPC’s Colloquiums offer a space for debate and dialogue between international experts, fostering innovative ideas and the formation of partnerships that will increase the effects of crime prevention as a tool for social improvement.

 

This year’s Colloquium was titled “Crime Prevention Strategies in the 21st Century: Evolving Practices and Policies”. As such, it focused on the evolution of the role of crime prevention actors as well as the challenges related to coordination and collaboration between governments. This theme allowed the Colloquium’s participants to share their perspectives on important subjects such as the different issues that affect crime prevention in different global regions, financial challenges in the field, or the need for strategies that are adapted to local urban settings.

 

This Colloquium was very successful in terms of organization, programme quality, diversity of participants, with rich presentations and discussions. Here is the Colloquium in numbers: 144 participants, 55 speakers, 4 plenary sessions, 12 workshops, 3 languages of communication (English, French and Spanish), 4 continents, 16 countries and 3 site visits.
