The event enabled Efus to meet high level representatives of the Tunisian authorities and discuss future cooperation. ...

Preventing discriminatory violence: a new working group and a series of events scheduled this autumn
In order to better coordinate the wide range of activities conducted by its members on the prevention of discrimination, Efus launched the “Just & Safer Cities for All” working group during its May 2018 General Assembly in Liege (BE). Led by the cities of Vienna (AT) and Bordeaux (FR), it aims to step up our common efforts to better protect fundamental rights through and in public security policies and to increase cooperation between local authorities and European institutions tasked with human rights promotion. Furthermore, a number of events are scheduled this autumn to promote Efus' approach on this issue and exchange with other institutions. ...
Innovation in urban security policies: Designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating public policies based on a prospective approach
Given the increasingly widespread use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the public sphere, notably in the areas of safety and security, and in order to help member local authorities fully harness their potential, Efus has set up a new working group on “Innovation and Security” open to all members but also to external partners such as universities, civil society organisations and private sector representatives, notably social media companies, startups, and other technology industries. The purpose of this initiative, which was decided at Efus’ May 2018 General Assembly in Liege (BE), is to share prospective reflections and insights on innovative strategies, both in the social and technological realms, that can be applied to urban security. ...
