The URBANEYE project shall provide a comparative overview of institutional contexts of CCTV in Austria, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom by textual interpretation of policy documents, legislation and the analysis of media discourses in selected print media.

The project shall examine the technical functions, the spatial configuration of control, the styles of management and the practice of surveillance in selected CCTV systems in each of the seven capitals (except Madrid).

The project will study the social effects of CCTV surveillance in terms of changes in criminal and every-day behaviour by analysing crime statistics and interviewing observed.
