Date: 3–5 April 2017
In the last two years, the National Institute of Criminology have been involved in the MARGIN project – Tackle insecurity in marginalized areas, a research funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme. The Final Conference of the project will be held in Budapest from the 3rd to the 5th of April 2017.
The Conference is jointly organized by the partners involved in the project, so participants will come from different parts of Europe and the world. The Conference aims at generating a debate around the project’s results as well as enhancing a process of knowledge exchange among researchers, policymakers and practitioners in the field of security.
During this three-day event in Budapest, the participants will be involved into different plenary sessions, seminars and debates with the objective of creating synergies towards the identification of good practices in the assessment of security issues and the implementation of policies targeted at the reduction of the perception of insecurity among different social groups. Moreover, this event will be an ideal venue for determining the best course for further research.
