Thank you for your participation!


Thank you for your participation in Efus' seventh Security, Democracy and Cities conference! The 2021 edition brought together 650 participants from 27 countries, with the aim of promoting the sharing of experiences and practicies between urban security actors. We hope that this event was as enriching for you as it was for us, and we invite you to answer a few questions to evaluate your satisfaction and improve the upcoming conferences:


The Security, Democracy and Cities Declaration


The Security, Democracy and Cities Declaration was signed during the closing session by Willy Demeyer, Mayor of Liège (Belgium) and Efus President and Christian Estrosi, Mayor of the host City of Nice (France) and Efus Vice-President. In the name of Efus members, it calls for heightened and more agile cooperation as well as adequate financial support between the local, national and European levels of governance. It also calls for the establishment of a Convention of Mayors for Security that would enable European local authorities to jointly respond to the many challenges they are facing.
