This parer introduces notions of contemporary globalisation and the manner in which crime and glotalisation interrelate. In particular, the importance of analysing crime and control at both local and global levels is emphasised. Issues of crime and space are addressed in the context of urbanisation. The tendencies of the city to marginalise, and the consequential criminal outcomes from this environment of modernisation (and the modem city) are discussed. Urban planning has had a crucial part to play in humanising and at the same time distinguishing the global push towards urbanisation, and crime prevention is now a recognised feature of globalised city planning. Crime accompanies urbanisation, and recently has shadowed urban planning. The paper concludes with a consideration of the manner in which urban planning in Australia can impact on crime trends and patterns, beyond crime prevention through urban design. The globalisation theme is reintroduced when suggesting a more integrated crime prevention and control strategy within which urban panning has a role to reduce social exclusion and hence the crimes of the marginalised.
