We remember that the MARGIN project provides policy makers with evidence-based tools for developing and assessing strategies targeted at the reduction of insecurity among different demographic and socio-economic groups. MARGIN sets up an international environment for knowledge exchange involving as partners some of the leading EU institutions in Crime Victimization Surveys (CVSs).
