Understanding Crowd Behaviours: Guidance and Lessons Identified

This practical report summarises the current body of knowledge on the topic, articulating current understandings of good practice in crowd management and giving planners clear direction, and supporting information, regarding the safe assumptions that may be made about crowd behaviour. This guidance aims to fill a gap in the canon of guidance, and contains information that aims to be of value to a broad cross-section of the public safety and resilience community. The report has been broken down into four sections: Understanding Crowd Behaviours: Guidance and Lessons Identified; Understanding Crowd Behaviours: Supporting Evidence; Understanding Crowd Behaviours: Simulation Tools and Understanding Crowd Behaviours: Supporting Documentation.
