Enacting safe places – A study of (im)balancing acts in everyday city centre management

Aktivitet: Föredrag eller presentationInbjuden talare


Navigating safety is a recent task for city centre managers in Sweden. In this presentation I address different strategies of enacting place safety in Swedish city centres. The presentation builds on a study carried out during the period 2017–2020 in the cities of Stockholm, Helsingborg and Malmö. By contrast to the dominant ‘top-down’ view of place safety as a manageable asset, we suggest that safety in public places should be understood as an ongoing accomplishment in everyday work practice.
