Abstract: This project is defined in the broad field of the socio-spatial Criminology, particularly it tries to test three main theories: social disorganization, collective efficacy and routine activities theory. Many studies tried testing these theories and the results are indeterminate. However, in my opinion these three theories could have explanatory capacity in determine the crime rate in a particular place. For this reason, this research has tried to look for the best explanation of crime in a certain location. Nevertheless, not only one theory could explain the phenomenon but also the mix of them. Moreover, I developed the same research in two different cities of two different countries to test if the results in both cities are the same, despite the many social and cultural differences.
