Efus launches its podcast channel on urban security: Join the conversation!

Paris, May 2024 – After a fruitful Security, Democracy and Cities conference in March in Brussels, the European Forum for Urban Security is launching a podcast channel to share its expertise and insights on urban security. 

Together with representatives from some of our member cities and regions as well as experts and practitioners, we’re exploring in the first season (10 episodes) a broad range of urban security issues such as the security of large events, the local impact of organised crime, the prevention of radicalisation leading to violent extremism and more! 

By giving voice to a wide variety of points of views and perspectives, our podcast series looks to facilitate knowledge sharing, inspire innovative approaches, and promote collaboration in creating safer and more inclusive urban environments.

Produced in the framework of the IcARUS project, the first episode will focus on 30 years of crime prevention and urban security starring Adam Crawford, Co-Director of the Vulnerability and Policing Futures Research Centre at the University of York and the University of Leeds (UK), and André Vervooren, former Director of the Safety Department of the City of Rotterdam (Netherlands). The episode is moderated by Efus’ Executive Director, Elizabeth Johnston.

They are available on all platforms including Spotify, Amazon music, YouTube and more. Join the conversation and subscribe to the only podcast (as far as we know!) dedicated to the future of urban security and resilience.
