Everyday Security Workshop - the Use of Social Media

An Everyday Security workshop organised by the European Forum for Urban Security (Efus) will be held in Barcelona, Spain on 14 November 2017, within the “Security, Democracy & Cities” Conference (15 – 17 November).


The workshop aims to better understand and to create a common awareness and vision on opportunities, means and threats of social media to improve everyday security. It will provide a forum for networking and sharing of practices, lessons learned and needs among traditional security providers and other actors who are involved in the co-production of security (local authorities, private sector and civil society organisations).

Important questions for security professionals that will be discussed include:

  • How LEAS and other security actors use social media, as a tool or as a resource for gathering information, to maintain everyday security?
  • How can LEAS and other security actors ensure that their actions represent a fair balance between the need to achieve security and respect the rights of citizens to individual privacy?
  • How can social media integrate the existing methods of data collection to prevent crime?
  • In times of smart cities, can information collected from open platforms, to facilitate citizens urban life, be used in daily security purposes?
  • How does social media change the relationship between police and citizens?
  • How can professional cultures and practices be modified to meet the challenges and opportunities social media presents?
