In this webinar, we assess current models of public safety planning by casting light on the safety needs of LGBTQ+ people. Compared with other groups in society, relatively little is known about the safety conditions of LGBTQ+ people. Inspired by principles of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED), a conceptual framework is proposed to compare the safety conditions experienced by LGBTQ+ people captured by survey data from Poland and Sweden-two countries that reflect the extremes of the spectrum of LGBTQ+’s rights in Europe. We finalize the webinar by challenging the legacy of current planning public safety frameworks and suggesting a new research agenda.
