A Safe City as a Just and Equitable City

This Dialogue will highlight the innovative thought and experiences related to urban development which have positively impacted on the safety of the most excluded and vulnerable groups, which have engaged them as agents of change and made their cities and urban lives more equitable. It will discuss original programming, skills and methodologies which focus specifically on the most vulnerable and excluded urban populations as key agents of change and encourage multi-level networks and partnerships interested in improving urban. Finally, it will identify roles of different levels of government and legislative mechanisms that promote safe and just cities for the most marginalized.
