Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att studera betydelsen av frälsning för upphörande med brott hosen grupp kriminella personer och vad som har gjort att de inte återfaller i brottslighet. Föratt kunna besvara studiens frågeställningar genomfördes semistrukturerade intervjuermed frälsta och icke-frälsta fångar och före detta fångar i Colombia. Utifrån intervjuernagjordes en tematisk analys baserat på bakomliggande orsaker till brottslighet, anledningtill frälsning och anledning till att inte återfalla i brottslighet. Alla intervjupersoner varöverens om att frälsningen blev en vändpunkt i deras liv, efter att de bestämt sig för attförändras. Ekonomiskt och socialt stöd i olika former och Gud beskrivs avintervjupersonerna som anledningarna till att de inte återfallit i brottslighet.Avslutningsvis konkluderades att det verkade krävas en kombination av Gud ochmateriella ting för att någon inte ska återfalla i brottslighet, samt att intervjupersonernagjorde ett aktivt val när de slutade begå brott.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine the importance of salvation in desistance from crimein a group of criminals, and what keeps them from turning back to crime. In order toanswer the study’s questions, semi-structured interviews were conducted with redeemedand non-redeemed prisoners and former prisoners in Colombia. Based on the interviews,a thematic analysis was made covering the underlying causes of crime, the reason forsalvation and the reason for not turning back to crime. All interviewees agreed thatsalvation became a turning point in their lives as they decided to change. Financial andsocial support in various forms and God is described by the interviewees as the reason fornot turning back to crime. In conclusion, it seems that a combination of God and materialthings are required for not turning back to crime, and that the interviewees made an activechoice to stop committing crimes.
