This book brings together a collection of leading international experts to explore the lessons learnt through implementation and the future directions of crime prevention policies. Through a comparative analysis of developments in crime prevention policies across a number of European countries, contributors address questions such as: How has 'the preventive turn' in crime control policies been implemented in various different countries and what have its implications been? What lessons have been learnt over the ensuing years and what are the major trends influencing the direction of development? What does the future hold for crime prevention and community safety?

Contributors explore and assess the different models adopted and the shifting emphasis accorded to differing strategies over time. The book also seeks to compare and contrast different approaches as well as the nature and extent of policy transfer between jurisdictions and the internationalisation of key ideas, strategies and theories of crime prevention and community safety.

'This book comprises a collection of essays by some of the leading experts in the field of community safety and crime prevention from across Europe (with a contribution from a Canadian academic) and provides an extremely informative and useful comparison of the implementation and future direction of crime prevention policy.' - Donald Urquhart, Retired Police Officer and Chair of the Scottish Community Safety Network in SCOLAG, May 2011

'Adam Crawford brings together a collection of readings on models of European crime prevention that is relevant for both policy makers and academics. ... Crawford presents a borad, yet detailed, collection, constructed around themes of convergance and divergance, implementation and the interplay between private and public prevention.

Overall, this is an important book for scholars and policy makers of crime prevention in Europe, especially those concerned with the transferance, transformation and implementation of prevention policies in differing political and cultural contexts.' - Amy E. Nivette, PhD Candidate, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge
