Live streamed event introducing the book “Crime and Safety in the Rural: Lessons from Research” with the authors, Vania Ceccato and Jonatan Abraham, from Friday, November 11 at 15.00-16.00.
The book serves as a quick introduction to an important but often neglected field: rural criminology. It summarizes a range of issues related to crime and safety in rural areas, including their implications for rural development at large and the UN sustainable development goals.
Topics covered among many others:
Crime trends and patterns in rural/semi-rural areas, including typical rural crime such as e.g., farm crime and environmental & wildlife crime.
Rural policing and crime prevention
Safety perceptions of rural inhabitants of various backgrounds, e.g., women and LGBTQ+.
The book is especially suitable as a quick introduction to the topic of rural crime and community safety for students, especially those of criminology, geography and rural studies.
