Final report. Evidence-based approaches to crime prevention in developing countries - a scoping review of the literature.
The aim of this study is to identify literature on crime prevention programmes and practices in developing countries. The objectives are to: summarise studies of crime prevention programmes and practices in developing countries; summarise studies that help develop methodology for the analysis and evaluation of crime prevention programmes and practices in the search for evidence-based, what works, research information; and identify the degree to which such studies identified make specific reference to, and/or show the impact of such interventions on the poor. A total of 91 studies published between 1980 and 2002 were included in this review. This final report outline's the project's background and objectives, data search and extraction, methodology, findings and implications.
