Delegates included representatives from China, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and across Europe.

The international colloquium discussed diverse local, national and international contemporary security challenges in the fields of comparative urban governance, comparative penal policies and international criminal justice.

The proceedings will be published in a forthcoming book by Cambridge University Press.
