Abstract [sv]

Brottsoffren hamnar ofta i skuggan av gärningspersonerna. Denna studie är viktimologisk och fokuserar således på individer som blivit utsatta för brott. En särskilt sårbar grupp är de äldre personerna i samhället. Syftet med denna studie var att identifiera äldre personers upplevda beteenden och upplevda personliga konsekvenser som uppkommit till följd av att utsättas för inbrott i sitt eget bostadshus. I denna kvalitativa studie har 12 personer intervjuats och med hjälp av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys fick vi fram fem kategorier: praktiska konsekvenser, kontroll, låsa dörren, personliga konsekvenser och inga personliga konsekvenser. Merparten av de som utsatts för inbrott i sitt bostadshus upplevde en rädsla för brott samt ett förändrat beteende i sitt vardagliga liv. Två teman utgör resultatet från intervjuerna: upplevda personliga konsekvenser och skyddsåtgärder mot inbrott. Ofta var det en rädsla för att bli utsatt för brott som gjorde att deltagarna utvecklade beteenden för att skydda sig själva från att bli viktimiserade.

Abstract [en]

Perpetrators often get a lot of attention while the victims of crime usually remain silent. This study is victimological and focuses on individuals that have been victims of crime. A particularly vulnerable group of people is the elderly. The purpose of this study is to identify older people's experienced behaviors and experienced personal consequences that have appeared after being the victim of burglary in their own home. In this qualitative study 12 individuals have been interviewed and with a qualitative content analysis five categories were produced: practical consequences, control, locking the door, personal consequences and no personal consequences. The majority of those who had been victims of burglary in their own home experienced a fear of crime and a changed behavior in their daily life. Two themes have been identified from the interviews; personal consequences as experienced by the participants and protective measures against burglary. Due to the fear of becoming a victim of crime, the individuals adopted the protective measures.
