Community Safety from the Bottom Up: Lessons from Northern Ireland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We have, in recent years, witnessed a shift in crime-control practices away from the police towards policing and, more broadly, from government to governance.
It is no longer appropriate to assume that the security of public places is the essential responsibility of public authorities. Central to this shift has been the debate over the role of civil society in the development of local crime and safety politics, with many crime and reduction partnerships constructed on the premise that, “the mobilisation of local knowledge is fundamental to the construction of just and democratic forms of security governance”. In the United Kingdom this
policy has led to community safety being placed at the heart of the place-shaping role of local authorities, albeit, as a ‘top-down’, managerialized and majoritarian brand of crime and disorder reduction.
