A safe city is a just city

World Habitat Day 2007 was held on 1 October 2007, under the theme – A safe city is a just city. The theme was selected to raise awareness and encourage reflection on the mounting threats to urban safety and social justice, particularly urban crime and violence, forced eviction and insecurity of tenure, as well as natural and human-made disasters.

The main celebrations of the Day took place in The Hague in the Netherlands, and in Monterrey in Mexico.
