Several recent developments place public space at the heart of the contemporary political agenda. Most of the world's population now lives in urban areas, which has led to the global expansion of problems of sustainability, urban management and planning, and equity in the provision and access of services. Bringing together international contributions from criminology, geography, sociology and surveillance studies, this interdisciplinary book focuses on order and conflict in public space, examining the complex ways in which social interaction is framed and in turn shapes the physical environment. The book considers several issues such as the role of inclusion and exclusion in behaviour and interactions in public space, the extent to which there is consensus on what it means for a space to be public and how this relates to concepts such as order and deviance, and the ways in which crime prevention, surveillance and policing taking physical form.
