Fighting Crime Through More Effective Design

This case study, from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), examines the impact of grant awarded to the Design Against Crime Research Centre at the University of the Arts, London. The Centre works on solutions to reduce criminal activity through the effective design of places, products, communications and services.

The Centre's approach is innovative and business-focussed and aims to create objects which are not only 'fit for purpose' but provide beautiful benchmarks as well.

AHRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
