Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


The aim of this paper is to examine terror protection installations, which serves to stop motorised terrorist attacks in Copenhagen. In this paper, Nyhavn will serve as the case, where the different terror protection installations will be examined. This paper seeks to uncover, as to why cities are deeming it necessary to establish these kinds of installations, and how it influences life in the street as well as the human psyche. The basis for approaching and handling knowledge in this paper can be found in Critical Theory by Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno and post-phenomenology by Dr. Don Ihde. As for the theoretical standpoints this paper works with the theory regarding city spaces as formulated by Jan Gehl in his book, ‘Life between buildings’, the British standard for security barriers ‘PAS 68’, as well as theories regarding fear, through the work by Frank Furedi in ‘Culture of fear’ and Peter Høilund in ‘Frygtens Ret’. How the knowledge is utilized, can be found in the different theoretical standpoints, as well as the methodological approaches that includes participatory observations and interviews with experts and people in the street. Stakeholders and people who were thought interesting to interview were identified, through a stakeholder analysis. This paper is, through the gathered empirical data, creating a tool. Through working with this tool, different terror protection installations can be analyzed. This analysis can be used in the assessment and design of future terror protection installations. Examples as to how this might be done, will be given as part of this paper.
