    Perceptions about firesetting among Swedish high school students2019In: International Journal of Adolescence and Youth, ISSN 0267-3843, E-ISSN 2164-4527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACTFires in school buildings are a major problem in Sweden. However, there is lack of research about juveniles? attitudes to this phenomenon. The aim of this study was to investigate how high school students in Sweden discussed arson and firesetting. Semi-structured interviews and focus group interviews were conducted with 32 high school students (aged 14?15). It was found that although most students argued that playing with fire were common phenomena in their schools, deliberate firesetting was said to be less common. In contrast to previous research the students in this study argued that both girls and boys were equally involved in firesetting and fire play. There was a consensus that arson was a serious problem and a problem that should be prevented.

    Sports participation and drug use among young people in Mauritius2018In: International Journal of Adolescence and Youth, ISSN 0267-3843, E-ISSN 2164-4527, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 188-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between drug use and sports participation among young people (14–25 years old) living in Mauritius. Data were collected through a self-administered questionnaire from a stratified sample of young people residing in Mauritius. According to the results, the strongest predictor of reporting drug use was age, recording an odds ratio of 2.50 and showing a positive effect. Drug usage was a negative predictor, meaning that the more use of drug, the less sport activity. In addition, gender predicted the respondents’ sports activity. This article concludes that sports can protect young people in Mauritius from getting into drug use, and policy-makers should focus more attention in tackling the gender disparities in sports participation.
