The Perspective of Victims : People exposed to violent crime, their view on the role as a victim and experiences of contact with Police and the Victim Support Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur personer utsatta för våldsbrott såg på offerrollen och hur de upplevde kontakten med polis och brottsofferjouren (BOJ). Den metod som användes för att studera detta var av kvalitativ design, genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem personer utsatta för våldsbrott. Huvudresultaten från studien visade på att intervjudeltagarna hade delade meningar om och hur de såg sig själva som offer samt att samtliga var övergripande nöjda och positivt inställda till stödet och kontakten med brottsofferjouren. Över lag var samtliga missnöjda med bemötandet från polisen. Slutsatserna vi kunde dra från resultatet och analysen var att förväntningarna hos intervjudeltagarna gentemot polisen inte verkade stämma i förhållande till verkligheten. Det verkade också finnas en ambivalens kring att definieras som ett offer.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper was to examine how victims of violent crime viewed the role as a victim and how they experienced their contact with the Police and the Victim Support Sweden (Brottsofferjouren, BOJ) regarding help and assistance. The method used for this purpose was of a qualitative design, through semi-structured interviews with five people exposed to violent crime. The main results showed that the participants had split opinions on if and how they viewed themselves as victims. Everyone were fairly satisfied and positive towards the support and the contact with the Victim Support Sweden. The participants were in general unsatisfied with the response from the Police. Conclusions from the results and the analysis was that the expectations from the participants towards the Police did not seem to coincide with the reality. It also seemed to be an ambivalence to be identified as a victim.
