ABSTRACT This paper introduces the work of Project Marc (an EU-funded project to develop mechanisms for assessing the risk of crime)
and discusses both difficulties encountered throughout the project and progress made since the project ended. The authors
introduce the papers contained within this special edition and summarise their relevance to crime-proofing. The paper discusses
progress made within this field in the decade prior to Project Marc and makes recommendations to ensure that the ideas move

    ABSTRACT: This paper is based upon a series of presentations given at Michigan State University as the 2006 Dae Chang International Visiting Scholar. It is not, therefore, a ‘normal’ journal article describing a particular study or review. Rather, it aims to make the case for a more systematic consideration of the role of science and technology in international crime control —not only in relation to our general understanding of crime, but also in developing techniques for its prevention and detection. In doing so, it draws, for illustration, upon a small international study funded by ADT Alarms as part of its thought leadership programme. The study provides one example of the kind of developments in international crime research of which, the paper argues, there is a need for more.
