Security & Tourism: Local Policies and Practices
Thursday 25 June 2015, Paris
Europe is the largest tourist destination in the world. Tourism is a key economic sector which contributes to the city’s image, but it can also produce specific types of crime. Cities, in partnership with tourism stakeholders, must ensure that a safe and suitable environment exists for its visitors, while also encouraging coexistence with the residents.
As essential factors in choosing a destination, security and the feeling of security are at the heart of a city’s quality of life. Temporary citizens, just like permanent residents, also have rights and needs. What policies and initiatives can be locally implemented in order to respond to these issues?
The Security & Tourism: Local Policies and Practices Conference organised by Efus is designed to mobilise the cities and their partners from all over Europe. Representatives from cities and European institutions, private sector stakeholders and experts will hold discussions on these questions: hosting large events, managing nightlife and how public spaces are shared, but also creating partnerships, using ad hoc tools and improving the city’s image.
The conference will also provide the opportunity to present the conclusions and recommendations developed by the partners of the Security & Tourism project for the very first time.
Participation in the conference is free of charge, but registration is mandatory to attend.
