Public spaces are characterized by general open access. From a historical perspective certain groups and individuals have always been excluded. This paper describes present tendencies in urban public spaces to demonstrate the fact, that the exclusion of certain groups and individuals is still a relevant issue and especially concerns target groups of social work. Additionally, aspects and tendencies of crime prevention are used to describe the fact, that social and health policies are replaced by security policies which explains the relevance of this subject to modern social work.
