Bank, T. W. (n.d.). Urban Safety in Residential Areas : Spatial Variables in Crime and Feeling of (In)Security. Retrieved from


Aware of the difficulties in understanding the roots of the phenomena and in offering solutions at that level (overcoming poverty, diminishing inequality or manipulating genetics), the research presented in this paper approached the subject in a way that has been insufficiently explored: the spatial perspective. The choice of this point of view is due to two important considerations. The first is that all social phenomena, and certainly crime and the feeling of safety in residential space, have an important spatial component (Hillier and Hanson, 1984). The second is that the seriousness and complexity of the problem requires answers at an operative level, and the residential habitat offers this possibility as it can be manipulated at a relatively low cost offering results in a relatively short term (compared to social variables).
