The conceptual problem : A qualitative interview study on the complexity of describing workplace violence against police officers in particularly vulnerable areas (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att skapa förståelse för komplexiteten av att beskriva

arbetsplatsrelaterat hot respektive våld mot poliser som arbetar i särskilt utsatta områden, med

utgångspunkt i den begreppsmässiga problematiken. Genom semi-strukturerade intervjuer med

fem poliser som arbetar i särskilt utsatta områden fann vi att det råder en begreppsförvirring

avseende arbetsplatsrelaterat hot respektive våld. Det framkom att hot var mer svårdefinierat

än våld samtidigt som det var möjligt att identifiera en ambivalens som påvisade att inget av

begreppen erhöll en självklar definition. Definitionen baserades dels på vilka uttryck och

handlingar som inkluderades respektive exkluderades, dels på vem som sätter gränserna för hot

respektive våld. Definitionen baserades även på vem som utför handlingarna. Studiens

viktigaste slutsats var att det inte med säkerhet bör gå att dra slutsatser kring omfattning och

karaktär utan att ta hänsyn till den begreppsmässiga problematiken som råder avseende

arbetsplatsrelaterat hot respektive våld i särskilt utsatta områden.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to create an understanding regarding the complexity of

describing workplace violence against police officers who work in particularly vulnerable

areas, based on the definitional problem. Through semi-structured interviews with five police

officers who work in particularly vulnerable areas, we found that there is a definitional

confusion regarding workplace violence. It emerged that threats were more difficult to define

than violence, while it was possible to identify an ambivalence that showed that none of the

concepts received a definite definition. The definition was based partly on which expressions

and actions were included and excluded, respectively, on who sets the boundaries regarding

threat and violence, but was also based on who is performing the actions. The main conclusion

of the study was that it may not be possible to draw conclusions about range and character with

certainty, without taking into account the definitional problem that prevails regarding

workplace violence in particularly vulnerable areas.
