To thisend, we examine urban security policies and discourses in Milan over the pastdecade. Drawing on archival data, official statistics and research reports, weanalyse the general policy framework that has emerged and consolidated in theperiod considered. Special attention is paid to a new frame for urban policiesinaugurated in 2005 with the stipulation of “Local Pacts for Urban Security”.
