The video below shows some images taken from the Consortium meeting organized by EuroCrime in Florence from 17th to 18th of December 2015. The meeting served as an occasion to summarize the current status and review the next steps in the MARGIN project, which aims to contribute to a long-lasting cooperation between the different stakeholders involved in security issues. Next meeting will be held in Barcelona on the 13th and 14ht of June

Our project aims to study the root causes of insecurity in Europe. But, what is it meant by the term of “insecurity” and how is it defined in the frame of the project? The UCL team, lead partner of WP3 (Data analysis of factors assessing public and personal insecurity), summarizes the MARGIN theoretical approach to the social phenomenon of insecurity

The MARGIN project’s aim is to coordinate and support public intervention in the field of (in)security by providing policy makers with high quality tools for creating and evaluating strategies targeted at the reduction of insecurity among different demographic groups. To achieve this general objective, the project has been designed to establish an international environment for knowledge exchange that enables the identification and analysis of factors influencing public and personal perceptions of
(in)security.
