This book uses crime-science and traditional criminological approaches to explore urban crime in the rapidly urbanising country Nigeria, as a case study for urban crime in developing nations. The book includes a thorough explanation of key concepts alongside an examination of the contemporary configuration, dynamics, dimensions, drivers and potential responses to urban crime challenges.
 

 

Africa's first interactive, open-source and peer reviewed small area segmentation and geo-visualisation system developed for all Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Nigeria.
 
NIGECS has been used to illustrate how developing countries can gain insight into social and spatial disparities within their local communities and make more intelligent policy decisions. More information is available on this flyer.
