In their words.

“This research focuses on the use of different public (and pseudo-public) spaces in urban areas. The study set out
to examine how different people use public spaces and to analyse how social interactions vary by age, gender or place.  The findings were considered in terms of their relevance for,

  • emerging policy agendas on shared and contested spaces,
  • intergenerational relationships,
  • safety and security,
  • and the management of public space.”
