EPC – Manageing Crowds Safely

Understanding Crowd Behaviours

don’t panic! correcting myths about the crowd

I am a social psychologist who specialises in the study of crowd behaviour. I am interested in all situations when people come together in a crowd, either to protest, go to a sports match or festival, or if they get caught up in a mass emergency. I set this blog up to redress what I saw was a negative bias in the Press against crowds in general. Hope you like it!
