The primary purpose of this chapter is to explore some of the most helpful ways forward for urban areas in seeking to tackle issues of crime and violence, based on the discussion in Chapter 4 of the policies being applied to this end. In this regard, the chapter is divided into five sections. The first explores the potential of the six groupings of policy responses to crime and violence identified in Chapter 4. The second section examines the emerging policy trends that were also identified in Chapter 4 in terms of their future utility. The third section looks at some of the key issues for implementing policy that have been identified since it is clear that one of the key challenges in this field is the need to find effective ways of putting them into practice. The fourth section pulls together some of the key issues that arise from these discussions for the future of the UN-Habitat Safer Cities Programme. The final section identifies 13 broad propositions that reflect the conclusions of this chapter.
