Abstract [sv]

I denna litteraturstudie har befintlig forskning kring medling vid brott för unga gärningspersoner och deras offer sammanställts. Eftersom metoden används i allt mindre omfattning trots att medling är en lagstadgad kommunal skyldighet var vårt syfte med studien att undersöka huruvida lagstiftarens intentioner med metoden om att gynna bägge parter uppfylls, och i sådant fall på vilket sätt. Arton artiklar har genom en systematisk litteratursökning valts ut och presenterats i tematisk form och därefter analyserats ur två teoretiska perspektiv. Resultatet visar att medling på det stora hela uppfyller lagstiftarens intentioner och är ett fredligt forum där individer genom samtal och insikter ges möjlighet till ansvar och läkning, samt att alienation i samhället reduceras. Problem kan uppstå om medling sker ofrivilligt eller genom påtryckning, vilket underminerar möjligheten till insikt. Resultatet påvisar bland annat vikten av socialtjänstens/medlarens kompetens och möjlighet till utbildning och handledning som skulle kunna kvalitetshöjas genom en övergripande statlig samordnare.

Abstract [en]

Title: Victim–offender mediation, a forgotten solution for juvenile delinquency? In this integrative literature study, existing research on mediation in crimes for young offenders and their victims has been compiled. As the method of mediation is used to a lesser extent in Sweden, despite the fact that it is a statutory municipal obligation, our purpose of the study was to investigate whether the legislator's intentions with the method of benefiting both parties were met and, if so, in what way. Eighteen articles have been selected and presented in a thematic form by a systematic literature search and subsequently analyzed from two theoretical perspectives. The result shows that mediation broadly complies with the legislator's intentions and is a peaceful forum where young offenders and their victims through dialogue are given the opportunity to reach insights which can lead to liberation for both parties. Problems can occur if mediation occurs inadvertently or by pressure as it undermines the possibility of insight. The results show the importance of education for and supervision of the mediators/the social services which could be provided by a comprehensive government coordinator.
