What is RISE?

We are an International Network aimed at promoting new security models and innovative solutions in public policies, at the local, regional, national, and international levels.

Individuals should take center stage in the public security policy field, with a view to ensure that their basic rights are safeguarded, that all types of violence are taken into consideration, and that the community itself has a say in defining, designing and implementing security policies.

Public security policies should develop an interdisciplinary and multi-situated approach focusing on social prevention interventions and giving shape to measures that may actually have an impact on the causes of crime and violence. This aproach should also enlarge the range of voices participating in policy, making conversations, including grassroot actors such as women’s rights, civil rights, anti-racist and climate activists.

Our main strength lies in paving the way for a wide, public, democratic discussion on these policies that may lead to collaborative arrangements, in which various actors may cross-nationally and cross-regionally share experiences, networking resources, knowledge, and abilities.
