    Jag älskar döden mer än ni älskar livet! ”: En kvalitativ studie om varför IS/DAESH krigare valt att strida för islamiska staten2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Digital development has made the efficiency of extremist networks possible. Internet and social media have been developed and started to be used as "human web-networks" for the recruitment of like-minded people with the same ideological hopes. For DAESH, this is something positive. The purpose is to give a deeper understanding of why young men join the DAESH. The empirical basis therefore consists of interviews conducted with DAESH warriors who are detained in place in northern Iraq. The opportunity to gain access to these respondents for both the study and the empirical basis is unique. The method used is of a qualitative nature. Furthermore, the profit part represents the empirical basis. Authors have transcribed the interviews, and then conducted a thematidation of collected data. With direct quotes from the material, authors argue that there are recurring patterns in it as respondents. The study concludes that young men join the DAESH because of social disorganization and the lack of strong social ties.

    Varför köper män sex?: En kvalitativ studie om mäns sexköp av kvinnor2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to examine why men purchase sex from women. The study includes internet as an arena for these purchases. The study material was collected through four telephone-interviews and one email-interview with men that have purchased sex on the internet. The study material has been analyzed with previous studies on the subject, radical feminism theory, self-control theory, routine activity theory and techniques of neutralization. The results showed that sex was purchased mainly because it was easier from an emotional perspective than to establish a sexual relationship. Sexual dissatisfaction with a partner and personal characteristics were described to have an effect on the men’s ability to have sex. The purchase then seemed to be the only way to satisfy their sexual needs. The internet enables several advantages. The purchase becomes practically easier at the same time as it offers anonymity.

    “Är du inte redo nu så står vi här, polisen finns kvar...”: En diskursanalytisk studie om polisens arbete med våld i nära relation2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of our study was to identify existing discourses of violence in close

    relationships based on investigators' reasoning within the police in order to visualize its

    consequences in the next step. The method chosen was of a qualitative nature, interviews

    were held with three investigators from a medium-sized city in Sweden. The material was

    then processed using a discourse analysis inspired by Foucault, as well as previous

    research on the subject. Three discourses were identified which were the discourse of

    gender, the normalization process and the attitude to theoretical knowledge. The result of

    the study shows that the investigators' attitude towards theoretical knowledge is something

    that affects their work in different ways, which may adventure the fact that investigators'

    work is based on unreliable knowledge.

    Problemorienterat polisarbete i Sverige: En kvalitativ intervjustudie av två lokalpolisområdens tillämpning av metoden2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe how the Swedish police puts the problem- oriented approach to practice on a local level. Twelve semistructured interviewes was conducted in two separate cities and the results showed a lack of guidelines in formulating the problems which the police was meant to solve. Furthermore the results indicated a wide range of sources of information as well as a variety of problemsolving methods. The methods was carried out with or without help from other agencies. Finally the study showed that the police do evaluate their work, although many police officers expressed a need for guidance in the process.

    Frågor som bjuder in till fri återberättelse eller frågor med riktade svar?: en kvalitativ studie om förhörsledares sätt att nyttja olika kommunikativa strategier i förhör.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här examensarbetet genomfördes som en kvalitativ studie, vars syfte var att undersöka hur förhörsledare använde olika typer av frågor vid förhör med vittnen, målsägande samt misstänkta gärningspersoner. Resultatet baserades på 44 stycken dialogförhör som analyserades med hjälp av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys där resultatet visade att språket används taktiskt för att uppnå olika mål i olika kontexter. Generellt formulerade sig förhörsledarna i störst utsträckning med specifika- eller slutna ja- och nej frågor. Varav den förstnämnda användes för att utröna detaljer kring brottet och den sistnämnda för att verifiera olika faktorer. En slutsats var att det fanns olika mål med förhörssituationen som ledde till att förhörsledarens sätt att ställa frågor anpassades efter dessa. Var målet att införskaffa information, användes frågor som benämns som specifika och berättande för att samla in så mycket och viktig information som möjligt. Eftersträvades det att fråga ut en individ, präglades istället språket av mer styrda frågor.

    Det här är något helt nytt, jag är en direktlänk: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om områdespolisers syn på att arbeta nära medborgaren2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to describe the views of community police officers towards working close to the citizen and if the views differed between community police officers in a metropolitan area and in a rural region, and if so, how they differed. Through semi structured interviews with six community police officers, three from each region, we found that all interviewees had difficulty defining what it meant to be close to the citizen. They also had difficulty distinguishing what was preventive and reactive in their work. A clear difference between the viewpoints of the work was that interviewees in the metropolitan area focused on the individuals while the interviewees in the rural areas focused on the local society. These were frequent differences throughout the result. The work of the community police officers was associated with a variety of challenges and opportunities, but all interviewees were pleased to work towards getting closer to the citizen and becoming more preventive.

    Ta ett steg bakåt och höj blicken: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om att förebygga hot och våld mot ambulanspersonalen i en medelstor svensk region2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this study was to create an understanding of how paramedics have experienced situations where they were exposed to threats and violence, and how the staff described how threats and violence could be prevented. Five semistructured interviews was performed in a mid sized region in Sweden. The main result showed that all respondents, at some occasion, have felt threatened. There have also been situations where they have been exposed to violent events. Patients with certain illnesses could contribute to the feeling of being exposed to threats and violence; although, if the employer had provided education and support in this, then maybe the situations could have been prevented. Our most important conclusion was that there have been little to no preventive work against threats and violence, except for a few courses, although, all respondents felt that experience had the biggest impact for how threatening and violent situations were handled.

    Gaining a Global Criminal Justice Perspective: A Computer-Supported Collaboration Between Students in Sweden and the United States2018In: Journal of Criminal Justice Education, ISSN 1051-1253, E-ISSN 1745-9117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) can globalize a criminal justice curriculum. It draws on a project where criminology students in Sweden and the United States collaborated in an online environment. We describe the design of the project and use student reflections to identify successes and challenges. The results show that for a CSCL to be successful, instructors need to be intentional about academic, psychological, and interpersonal aspects of the collaboration, as they are all interrelated. The students experienced challenges, for example, related to the workload. However, in most cases, the perceived benefits outweighed the challenges. The students reported an improved understanding of criminology theory and enhanced critical thinking skills. We argue that CSCL can improve the affordability and accessibility of global learning. Without having to travel, the students entered a virtual space where they could learn together with students and faculty from another country.

    Den onormala kvinnan: En kvalitativ studie av konstruktionen av kvinnliga våldsbrottslingar och hur detta kan ta sig uttryck i svensk press2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate how the female criminals are portrayed in media, with a scientific theoretical basis of social constructionism. The study is based on various stereotypes that can be used in media's representation of female offenders. To investigate this, a qualitative content analysis was used. The essay is based on a social constructivist approach, which means that female and male is seen as something socially constructed. The theoretical bases are located in gender theory and the various designs which exist in Media’s image of the female offender. Media can use various stereotypical descriptions of violent female offenders and can also reproduce the perception of the female offender as a abnormal woman. The conclusion drawn is thatmedia contributes to a one-sided picture of female offenders and that further research on women and crime in media is needed as this field of research is relatively small.

    Avvikande barn eller ideala offer?: En studie kring hur mediala konstruktioner av barn, som drabbats av upprepad utsatthet av andra barn, förändrats över tid2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur barn, som drabbats av upprepad utsatthet

    av andra barn i samband med skolan, har konstruerats i media. Ett särskilt fokus låg på

    vem eller vilka som skuldbelades för händelsen. Som metod användes en kvalitativ

    innehållsanalys av tidningsartiklar i Svenska Dagbladet och Dagens Nyheter för åren

    1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 samt 2010. Studien visar att föreställningar kring den

    brottsdrabbade har förändrats över tid. År 1970 framställdes det drabbade barnet som

    avvikande eller underlägsen och tilldelades skuld samtidigt som gärningspersonen

    framställdes som vem som helst. Med tiden har föreställningar kring det drabbade

    barnet blivit mer idealiserande. Dessutom har både gärningsperson samt

    skola/huvudman framträtt mer markant allt eftersom tidens gång vilket resulterat i en

    ansvarsförflyttning.

    Den kriminalpolitiska debatten om skjutvapenbrott: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys med utgångspunkt i statens offentliga utredningar2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte var att analysera hur skjutvapenbrott beskrivs i statens offentliga utredningar under perioden 1994-2014, vi ville se om det skett några förändringar över tid i den kriminalpolitiska debatten gällande den specifika brottstypen. Frågeställningarnas fokus låg främst på hur brottet konstrueras samt vilka motåtgärder som anses lämpliga och hur detta kan förstås utifrån teorier om normaliseringsprocesser.

     

    Som metod har vi använt en kvalitativ innehållsanalys och datamaterialet bestod av tio relevanta utredningar som i någon utsträckning berör skjutvapen. I analysen fann vi tre stycken huvudteman som kunde relateras till frågeställningarna vi hade och benämnde dessa orsaker till skjutvapenbrott, konsekvenser av skjutvapenvåld samt åtgärder och påföljder. Resultatet av analysen visade att det skett en normalisering av tvångsmedelsanvändning och lagstiftningsreformer, genom en utökad användning av hemliga tvångsmedel och strängare straff för skjutvapenbrott. Det hade också skett en förändring gällande hur brottet konstrueras över den berörda tidsperioden.

    Kvinnors brottslighet och dess orsaker: En studie om framträdande riskfaktorer för kvinnor2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to identify the risk factors most prominent in women suspected of crimes. For this, a quantitative method was used in which data obtained from personal investigations carried out by the Swedish correctional facility, Kriminalvården, were compared to public statistics of the normal population. In addition, a research overview was made on the subject, where the presence of the selected investigative variables was controlled. The study also highlights the presence of multiple risk factors within the group of women suspected of crime. Most of the risk factors investigated had pronounced stronger outcomes in the group of suspected women, which were also found as strong predictors in the comparative research. The factors mental illness and family dysfunction were the most prominent risk factors in the review of previous research. In the statistical comparison between the group of women suspected for crime and the normal population, the factors mental health, alcohol presence and drug presence were the most prominent differentiated factors. Furthermore the study indicates that the presence of multiple risk factors is common. Based on this, it is possible to discuss how girls can be protected from vulnerability in society as well as how to handle treatment care for offending women.

    Vikten av ett stöd som hjälper och inte stjälper: En narrativ studie om stödets betydelse för kvinnor som utsatts för våld i nära relation2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to, by qualitative interviews, examine how women subjected to domestic violence experienced the support they were given when they reached for help. This was examined through a narrative view, with the “process of normalisation of violence” as a theoretical perspective. The results of the study showed that the majority of the interviewed women were unsatisfied with the support they received. This emerged through their expressions of how they perceived a response characterised by mistrust and misunderstanding regarding the complexity of domestic violence. Regardless of how the interviewed women perceived the help, they all expressed the importance of support to endure the different processes that a break up could entail and to be able to move on by finding their identity again. The study found that there is a need to visualise the extent of domestic violence and broaden knowledge about its complexity, as it could contribute to better support for women subjected to domestic violence.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of our study was to examine how teachers in the senior level of the 'grundskola' (högstadiet) and upper secondary school (gymnasiet) relate to violence in school. In order to examine this, we have done qualitative interviews with five teachers. The teachers defined violence against them mostly as physical acts and considered their own victimization to be low. The teachers though expressed that exposure to psychological violence was common. Their strategies to cope with violence were formed by the construction of their profession. The teachers were diffident about defining themselves as victims. They held themselves as strong and capable of coping with violence and pointed out maintaining order in class as a key point to avoid victimization. Another key point was good relations between teachers and student. Suggested measures against school violence consisted of increased resources in order to prevent students failure and thereby reduce risk situations.

    Lustmord eller mordmardröm?: Ett genusperspektiv på svensk press porträttering av en kvinnlig och en manlig gärningsperson2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to reflect how both a female and a male perpetrator were portrayed in the media by observing two different cases that both received media attention and shared a lot of similarities. We wanted to examine the similarities and differences between these two cases with support from gender and criminological theory and see if they could be understood from a gender perspective. We did this through a qualitative content analysis of Swedish newspaper articles. The result showed that the differences were more than the similarities. What we primarily could discuss based on gender perspectives were the different depictions that were made around the perpetrators' motives and approaches. The female perpetrator was portrayed as an extreme case, with a lot of emotions attached to her crime, while the male perpetrator's case was presented in a more neutral progression, focused on him being a misfit and deviant. In conclusion, we discussed and emphasized that this study can be seen as an small section of the field and therefore require additional similar research in order to make the results valuable.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study was to examine police perceptions of approaches to family violence and how the type of crime is handled among the police. The study conducted semi-structured interviews with six police officers who in their work encountered and managed the type of crime. The main outcome of the study was that perceptions about the importance of the police focusing on family violence but also opposite perceptions about existing negative attitudes towards the type of crime among police officers. The negative attitudes were explained to depend on that family violence was considered difficult to deal with, less exciting or less “cool” compared with other types of crimes, and that it seemed to be an insufficient understanding for the victim. The majority of the respondents’ perceptions were that policemen seemed more willing to use experience and routines while dealing with family violence than to use some kind of method support. Simultaneously, many perceived that that the attitude of police officers may affect how they handle the crime.

    Sexual approaches on the internet - An exploratory study on how ninth graders risk of exposure can be affected by their habits

    The purpose with the study was to do an exploratory study of the risk of ninth graders in Västra Götaland being exposed to sexual approaches on the internet and if it is affected by their internet habits. To do the examine a quantitative survey method was used.

     

    The results of the study have shown that just over half of the respondents have been exposed to sexual approaches on the internet. There was significant correlation between the risk of exposure and some of the internet habits, like contact with strangers, the amount of time they spend online.

     

    The most important conclusions in the study are that there are connections between some internet habits and the risk of being exposed to sexual approaches. There are also internet habits that don’t increase the risk of being exposed and that more knowledge is needed in the area.

    Dömda till arbetslöshet?: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om arbetsgivares föreställningar om fängelsedömda2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to examine employers’ perceptions of prisoners and the factors that were perceived to affect employability. Using semistructured interviews with six employers we found that prisoners were primarily described through one of the two following categories; the employable and the non-employable. The factors affecting employability concerned the type of offense that had led to the prison sentence and the risks that were perceived to accompany this type of offense. To handle these risks, access to criminal history records was considered a valuable tool. At the same time, it was emphasized that easily accessible criminal history records may cause difficulties for ex-prisoners to readapt into society. However, what affected the employability the most was whether or not employers had confidence in the individual and if the person had made a good impression. Furthermore, it emerged that perceptions of women in prison differ from the perceptions about prisoners (mainly men). This was because women in prison were seen as victims rather than perpetrators.

    Narrative Stories and Discourses in an Interview With a Former Amphetamine User2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1360-1368Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes how an individual constructs his life as a former amphetamine user. The study has a methodological purpose, providing an example of how narrative analysis and discourse analysis can be conducted and combined. First, an interview with a former amphetamine user in his 50s was analyzed by the narrative method with a focus on identity construction. Second, it was then examined from a discourse analytical perspective. The article demonstrates how discourse analysis and narrative analysis could be combined when analyzing identity constructions.

    Russian Media Narratives About Young Drug Users2013In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 48, no 13, p. 1336-1349Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1960s, the media in Western Europe and the United States has been one important actor in the public understanding of the drug phenomenon. In Russia, however, it is only since the 1980s that illegal drugs have been discussed in the media and this discussion remains on-going today. By using narrative analysis, this article focuses on how illegal drug use among young people is constructed in the Russian press. As a result of the narrative analysis, three main discourses were identified: a foreign problem discourse, a disease discourse, and a medical discourse.

    Våldtäktsoffers trovärdighet och tillförlitlighet i rätten: En kvalitativ innehållsanalys2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper was to study what it is that the district courts judge and value when it comes to credibility and reliability in the stories of victims of rape. We also wanted to study if these factors could be compared to the ideal and the non-ideal victim. The method that was used for this study was qualitative content analysis. The sample was obtained from two different district courts. The results show that there are several common categories that are often used by the districts courts in their judgements, such as witness testimonies, the behaviour of the victim before, during and after the incident and additional evidence. Our conclusions from the study are that rape victims can be treated differently in court and that the assessments look different depending which verdict it is about. The study shows that certain factors from the outcome may contribute to higher or lower victim status according to the theory of the ideal victim and descriptions of the complicit, passive and non-compliant victim. Other factors from the result could not be linked to these ideals of victims.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of long term imprisonment on

    inmates. Our prime interest have ben to identify if eventual effects are considered

    positive or negative or even a combination of the two. To answer these questions

    we conducted observations of convicts in a high security prison in Sweden. The

    collected data were followed by interviews with individuals who have spent

    considerable time behind bars. We discovered several different behavioral effects

    whilst conducting our study. Most of them indicated negatively by alienating and

    suppressing the individual's development, distancing them further away from the

    community. Inmates tend to alter their behavior substantially when being locked up

    for longer periods of time in small places with other criminals. Hence their

    identities change to fit into the environment. Some individuals develop

    communicational skills to adapt and manage their lifestyle in prison. In general,

    incarcerated individuals develop special social skills that are crucially needed in

    prison environment but tend to be redundant in the social community.

    Key words - differential association, social bonds, communication, identity

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was an attempt to discover what the youth participants in a suburbs north of Stockholm district, may have experienced during their involvement in “SiG”.  In our study we also tried to explore what the other instances, may have experienced during their involvement in “SiG”, north of Stockholm district. “SiG” is a shortening of “social insatsgrupp” in swedish, and can be explained as the persistent local work around a youth who holds a risky behavior such as criminality and addictions to prevent that the negative characteristics escalates. In this study we use a qualitative approach, including qualitative research, such as phoneinterviews, conversations, and computer-assisted interviews. The main result we believe we have found, indicates experiences as skepticism towards the roll of the police. But also that the other instances must be committed to the cooperation. The various instances and the youth, need to understand their roles, their limitations, their goals, but also respect each others missions. Only if that can be achieved, maybe then the experience of labeling can be avoided.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper has been to investigate how doping felonies are constructed in government bills. Questions have been aimed at how doping felonies are described regarding perpetrator, cause, consequences and prevention. A question regarding David Garland’s coined symbolic denial and it’s occurrence in the texts has been covered. Qualitative content analysis of 51 different government bills has been employed as a method. Results showed that the political debate regarding doping can be divided into four main categories: causes for doping, consequences of doping, suggestions for preventive strategies and the substance and felony’s character. Results showed a prevailing perception that doping occurs mainly among young men as a consequence of prevailing ideals. The side-effects of doping substances are viewed as the main consequence. Suggestions for preventive strategies are mostly based on formal social control. It can be argued that symbolic denial does occur in the texts.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper was to examine how the community police officers perceived their ability to carry out its mission. We also examined if their experiences could be confirmed by local police chiefs and municipal employees with collaborative/security responsibilities. This was examined through qualitative interviews to capture the interview participant's personal opinion and experiences around the topic. The main results show that the interviewees were in favor of the community officers personal expertise, mandate and empowerment to be able to lead the collaboration with external parties. Perceived negative conditions was mainly the lack of operational resources, but also of methodological support, statistics etc. from the police organization itself. Also the organizational culture within the police was perceived to have a negative impact with its hierarchy, rank system, as well as the perceived status of the proactive work methods.

    The study's main conclusions is that operational resources is a prerequisite for the investment in the community police to work. Priority on the crime preventive work must also be propagated to the entire organization, not just a dedicated resource. Professional support regarding methodological support and such should also be easily accessible.

    Abstract [en]

    Over the past 30 years, Sweden has witnessed a growth in criminal gangs. Gun violence among young males is also on the rise and have only recently gained wide political attention. Street gangs and gun violence are two prevalent, partially overlapping phenomena that constitute social challenges. Empirically supported legal, policy and practical frameworks are needed in order to reduce the prevalence of gangs and gang violence in Sweden. The first step is to recognize that gangs and gang violence are an emerging societal problem and to identify its root causes, organizational dimensions, and operational patterns. In this note, Swedish street gangs and gang violence are briefly discussed.

    A Criminological Perspective on Recruitment of Men and Women to Daesh2018In: International Annals of Criminology, ISSN 0003-4452, Vol. 56, no 1-2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Criminological research usually directs its focus at traditional forms of offending. The purpose of this article is to discuss the extent to which traditional criminological theories can be used to understand a modern form of terrorism. The main issue to explain is why young men and women from a Western European country, such as Sweden, are joining Daesh in Iraq and Syria. The conclusion is that many criminology theories are useful to analyse the factors behind the affiliation to Daesh. The majority of those recruited into this organization have in many respects a similar background to individuals recruited to other forms of serious organized violent crimes. It should be noted that many of the theories discussed in the paper are more relevant for the understanding of why men join Daesh. When it comes to the recruitment of women these theories’ explanatory value is more limited. However, this applies also to these theories’ ability to explain female crime in general.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish criminal code of 1864 was based on the views of the classical school of criminal justice, which rested on the two cornerstones of justice and proportionality. Thus, the punishment should proceed from the criminal act and be proportionate to the severity of the act in question. Over time, however, this classical view was abandoned, and sanctions gradually became individualized on the basis of different characteristics of the offender. When determining the severity of sanctions, increasing consideration came to be given to factors such as the offender’s anti-social nature, psychological condition, and the danger he or she posed to society. By the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s, the Swedish justice system was characterized by a treatment focus. However, this approach came to be questioned in Sweden during the latter part of the 1970s-similar to many other parts of the western world. Today’s Swedish legislation on young offenders represents a compromise between the classical theory’s demands for justice and proportionality and treatment theory’s focus on prevention and rehabilitation. Social services and diversion from the legal system has still strong influence on reaction to the criminal acts of the youngest offenders (up to 15 and often even 18 years), while the legal system’s influence increases with the offender’s age. Compared with many other countries, the system can still be considered as lenient and characterized by humanistic values.

    Hur styr medborgarlöftet polisen?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten syftar till att undersöka hur medborgarlöften styr polisens lokala verksamhet. Datainsamlingen genomfördes med semistrukturerade intervjuer med kommunpoliser. I intervjuerna framkommer det att medborgarlöftena tas fram via en process som grundar sig i både statistiska data och medborgardialoger. Medborgarlöftenas huvudsakliga fokus ligger på tre punkter, ’Trygghet’, ’Brottsförebyggande’ och ’Ökad kontakt med lokalsamhället’. Utifrån dessa tre fokuspunkter styr medborgarlöftena polisens verksamhet genom att producera ett strategiskt och långsiktigt mål för den lokala polisverksamhetens brottsförebyggande och trygghetsskapande arbete.

    Increased Gun Violence Among Young Males in Sweden: a Descriptive National Survey and International Comparison2018In: European Journal on Criminal Policy and Research, ISSN 0928-1371, E-ISSN 1572-9869Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This population-based time-trend study examines gun violence rates among males in Sweden during the years 1996 to 2015 and compares the rate in Sweden to other Western European countries. Data were collected from six registries and are presented descriptively per 100,000 inhabitants. The risks among males in Sweden increased considerably in both lethal and non-lethal gun victimization and perpetration. Among males aged 15 to 29 there was a five-fold increase in risk for victimization in lethal and non-lethal gun violence during the 20-year observation period. In a comparative perspective the rate of gun homicide victimization among males 15 to 29 years was higher in Sweden compared to other Western European countries, while the risk for males over age 30 was at an average level. Based on the results of this study we conclude that gun violence among young males in Sweden has been on the rise and is at a high level compared to other Western European countries. The development of gun violence in Sweden can be characterized as endemic, prevalent in both population and socially vulnerable areas.

    Unga cannabisbrukare: En kvantitativ studie om sociala faktorers betydelse för ungdomars cannabisbruk i Stockholms stad2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Cannabis use is illegal according to swedish drugpolicy. Self-reported data shows that cannabis is the most common drug used by adolescents in Sweden. Among results from previous studies several findings indicate a strong correlation between cannabis use during adolscence and failure in school, poor parental ties and criminal behaviour. This study used a school-based sample of adolescents in Stockholm. The main focus of this study was to examine if social factors linked to Hirschi's social bonding theory affect if adolescents used cannabis. Results from a logistic regression analysis partly supported Hirschi's theory. The results suggested that cigarettesmoking and alcohol intoxication are the two strongest factors which affect if adolescents use cannabis. Findings also indicated that young cannabis users tend to have friends who use illegal drugs.

    Att skapa kunskap för att förebygga hot och våld i statliga myndigheter: En jämförelse mellan två perspektiv på säkerhet.2017In: FALF KONFERENS 2017: Arbetslivets utmaningar  i staden och på landsbygden, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    År 2010 knivskars en kvinnlig vårdare till döds av en intagen klient på ett LVU-hem. Två chefer dömdes till i hovrätten till villkorlig dom för arbetsmiljöbrott genom vållande till annans död därför att rätten ansåg att cheferna inte gjort en tillräcklig riskbedömning (2010-B-2098). Det var inte knivdådet i sig som betraktades vara ett brott, utan straffbarheten låg i att arbets-givaren inte har förebyggt risken i tillräckligt hög grad.  Vissa samhällsfunktioner, till exempel förvaring och internering av klienter, kan inte fullgöras om inte arbetstagarna utsätts för vissa former av risker som kan leda till ohälsa eller olycksfall. Den verksamheten är inte kriminell i sig, förutsatt att riskbedömningar kontinuerligt genomförs och åtgärder vidtas i förebyggande syfte. Det som är straffbart enligt arbetsmiljölagen 8§ är att underlåta att göra en noggrann riskbedömning av verksamheten. Varje arbetsgivare har enligt alltså enligt arbetsmiljölagen (AFS 2001:1) ansvar att bedriva ett systematiskt arbetsmiljöarbete. I det systematiska arbetsmiljöan-svaret ingår att det ska finnas en arbetsmiljöpolicy som beskriver hur arbetsförhållandena ska vara för att ”ohälsa och olycksfall i arbetet ska förebyggas och en tillfredsställande arbetsmiljö uppnås” (5§).

    I Arbetsmiljöverkets allmänna råd om tillämpningen av föreskrifterna anges att en viktig utgångspunkt i arbetsmiljöpolicyn är de risker som finns i verksamheten Fokus för den här studien är hur dessa risker identifieras i statliga myndigheter där krävande klientkontakter är vanligt förekommande.I studien beskrivs två perspektiv på säkerhet, stabil och habil. Perspektiven används som verktyg för att analysera hur arbetsmiljölagen implementeras i statliga myndigheters arbete med att göra riskbedömningar för att förebygga våld och hot. Ett genomgående fokus för analysen är en eventuell närvaro av ett arbetstagarperspektiv i säkerhetsarbetet. Kännetecknande för det stabila perspektivet är standardisering av säkerhetsarbetet. Målsättningen är att arbetstagare ska avvika från rutiner i så liten utsträckning som möjligt. Inom det habila perspektivet är arbets-tagarperspektivet centralt för att säkerhetsarbetet ska vara adekvat i relation till hur arbetet ser ut i praktiken. Först beskrivs arbetsmiljö-lagstiftningen som anger hur säkerhetsarbetet ska gå till. Därefter analyseras en gruppintervju med tio huvudskyddsombud från olika statliga myn-digheter för att undersöka hur huvudskyddsombuden upplever att lagstiftningen fungerar i det dagliga arbetet. Analysen görs med riktad innehållsanalys. En genomgång av arbetsmiljölagstift-ningen visar att arbetsgivare uppmanas att utnyttja arbetstagares kunskaper och erfarenheter. Huvudskyddsombuden vittnar dock om att arbetstagares möjligheter till input i säkerhetsarbe-tet saknas i praktiken och att arbetstagarnas faktiska möjlighet till deltagande i säkerhetsarbetet därmed inte motsvarar arbetsmiljölagens syfte. Orsakerna till detta härleds till organisatoriska aspekter samt till en konflikt mellan två olika styrningsideal

    Abstract [sv]

    En utgångspunkt i arbetsmiljölagen är att kartlägga de risker som finns i verksamheten. För att undersöka om det finns en diskrepans mellan vad lagen stadgar gällande arbetstagares rätt till deltagande i säkerhetsarbetet, och i vilken utsträckning det sker i praktiken, har vi intervjuat tio huvudskyddsombud på statliga myndig-heter med krävande klientkontakter. I studien används två perspektiv på säkerhet som vi hämtat från säkerhetsforskning, stabil och habil.Perspektiven används för att analysera hur arbetsmiljölagen implementeras i statliga myndigheters arbete med att göra riskbedömningar för att förebygga våld och hot. Huvudskyddsombuden efterfrågar mer habilitet och ett större inflytande i säkerhetsarbetet. Varför arbetstagarperspektivet inte integreras i den utsträckning som lagen gör gällande förklaras med att betoningen av den stabila, formella sidan av arbetsmiljöarbete sker på bekostnad av en utveckling i form av arbetstagarmedverkan.
