Social Safety Performance: Study Results and Dashboard Launch

14 March 2024
14.00 - 15.00 CET

Social safety is the existence of the necessary societal conditions for citizens to live their lives and enjoy their rights free from any harm caused or threatened by other individuals or groups. For the state, social safety implies the duty and responsibility to ensure that these conditions are in place.”

About the event

In search for practices that lead to excellent performance, EIPA and the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations of the Netherlands perform a multiannual benchmarking study (2022-25) to evaluate the effectiveness, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, satisfaction and trust of citizens, enterprises, and other relevant stakeholders regarding available products, services, provisions, and outcomes in ten policy areas in 35 countries.

The second chapter of the sub-study undertaken in 2022 evaluates the performance of public services in the area of social safety. It provides an overview of crime-related challenges, emphasising crime prevention and criminal justice strategies. It analyses quantitative data from various sources, encompassing indicators related to social safety, such as public expenditure, arrest rates, conviction rates, crime rates, and perceptions of safety.

On 14 March from 14.00 to 15.00 CET our experts will present the key findings and the interactive dashboard.

The study is funded and supported by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations of the Netherlands.
