Security in Diversity European Project

Written on January 21, 2011 by Roberto Arribas in Learning Activities, Psychology, Seminars

NEW PROFESSIONAL PROFILES AND INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IN PUBLIC SAFETY AND URBAN MANAGEMENT, CORE SUBJECTS OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM OF THE “SECURITY IN DIVERSITY” EUROPEAN PROJECT 

The “Security in Diversity” project of IE University begins 2011 with a pioneer Training Program on new professional profiles and innovative practices in public safety and urban management to approach the challenges and opportunities of our global, diverse, and technological cities of this XXI Century, such as Madrid Central District, where the activities of the projects are carried out.  The courses are designed based on the results of an international study developed through the project since 2009.  The training program is aimed at practitioners of collaborating institutions and related entities.  Funded by the European Commission, the series of Program courses will allow an active analysis between national and international lecturers and participants on the opportunities of new international practices to face the present and future challenges in the Spanish society in general, and in Madrid in particular. 

The program focuses in three knowledge areas: Public safety and community police; integral community management; and other urban specialties (community health, urban planning, environment, citizen participation, justice, economy and employment, communication, new technologies…).  The Program will start with a course titled, “Models and Practices of Public Safety Centered in the Neighborhood: An Analysis of Present Tendencies”, and it will be opened with a talk by Mr. Antonio Jorge Resende da Silva, Chief of the National Police at Loures (Portugal), who will address the Public Safety Local Contract of Loures and the experience of proximity police in Portugal, the 27th of January. 

The day before, a third meeting of the International Seminar on Innovative Practices around Public Safety will also have the presence of Chief Resende da Silva, who in this case will talk about the philosophy of neighborhood-centered policing.  The International Seminar is complementary to the training program, and it is aimed at police chiefs and managers of community and local services.  It will end in the International Congress on Public Safety in a Diverse Society next October in Segovia and Madrid.
