Problem

Personal physical insecurity

Other Names:
Fear of violence
Anxiety about personal safety
Increasing sense of personal vulnerability
Incidence:

Many people live with an unremitting sense of fear for their personal safety. Many communities are pervaded by a feeling of physical insecurity. An environment of uncertainty leads to a heightened sense of insecurity among the inhabitants: day-to-day operations are carried out in (often unconscious) fear.

Claim:

Insecurity feeds on itself. People remain indoors out of fear, emptying the streets, and thereby adding to the already prevalent feeling of insecurity.
