Moving Safely : Crime and Perceived Safety in Stockholm's Subway Stations Hardback
A sustainable city enables the fulfillment of the mobility needs of its citizens via accessible, reliable and safe transportation systems.
Safety is one of many factors influencing the mobility of individuals in urban environments.
Moving Safely: Crime and Perceived Safety in Stockholm's Subway Stations aims to provide both theoretical and empirical perspectives on safety conditions at subway stations.
The book adopts an approach that is place-centered, looking upon those who travel through the system and who may become a victim of crime.
Safety at transportation nodes is not a field for one science only; it demands the combination of cross-disciplinary theories (urban criminology, architecture, geography, transportation and urban planning) as well as integrated methods that are capable of dealing with an ever-increasing volume of data.
Adopting a whole journey approach to safety, the book offers suggestions on how to plan safety at subway stations with a variety of passengers' needs.
Although these suggestions are not the first ones in the literature, certainly they are new in terms of relying on findings from hypothesis testing and spatial data from a Scandinavian city.
Moving Safely is relevant for experts in safety and transportation research, including criminologists, planners, transportation engineers, architects as well as professionals dealing directly with safety interventions.
