11th International Center for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) Colloquium

The proposed theme for the 2014 Colloquium provides a valuable opportunity to focus on a growing phenomenon the increasing mobility of society and the development of technologies we use. The Colloquium will also explore the outcomes of this phenomenon; namely the emergence of new types and trends of crime, as well as changes in ongoing issues (e.g. domestic violence). This in turn demands a more comprehensive approach involving a highly diverse range of national and transnational partners. While these changes have drawn the attention of security and criminal justice sectors, intelligence services and law enforcement, there is a strong case for increasing initiatives and strategic responses that emphasize prevention as a means of addressing root causes.
