Abstract: This paper argues that urban violence and insecurity are central societal issues which are a significant part of people's concerns and democratic life. Its analysis implies an extensive understanding of globalisation and urban dynamics that characterise late modernity in its multiple dimensions: i.e. the social, cultural, political, and economical dimensions. Urban violence and insecurity call for a new institutional framework and the definition of new public security policies that will respond to the insecurity that prevails in urban society. The comprehensive analysis of the relationship between the evolution of crime and the development of the feeling of insecurity allows us to understand how contemporary society lives and deals with the issue of security.
