Terrorism have become a reality in the western world. The latest year we have witnessed several attacks, as the ones in France, in Brussels and latest in Berlin. This raises questions for urban planning that this project seeks to investigate. The project aims to contribute to a reflexive discussion on anti-terror planning, underling the dilemmas found on the way counter-terrorism is being handled in Copenhagen. Inspired by Michel Foucault governmentality perspective, the project explores how the stakeholders involved in the process of securing the danish parliament against terror attacks, operate within the field of counter-terrorism. Other examples are also taken into consideration, but the process of securing the parliament is the base study in this project. The research has shown that PET (The danish security and intelligence service) has a considerable power regarding decisions of what to, and how to, secure the city. Due to the level of secretness of their work, and the high consideration other stakeholders have for the service, a discussion of prioritizing security rather than other aspects can be challenging. In addition, implementing security measures immediately after a near attack, is shown to be a tendency. This can have consequences on how the planning generally is done, and what measures are chosen to be implemented. There is a need for a more opened, widely and reflective discussion on which rationalities are behind the way counter-terrorism measures are being implemented in the city, and on which way they affect the development of the city.
