Abstract [sv]

Studenters uppfattning om stalkning skiljer sig åt. Kvinnor anser att flerh ändelser är stalkning medan män tänker att händelserna inte klassificeras som stalkning. Män tänker även att det oftare är offrets egna fel att denne blir utsatt. Det finns ideala brottsoffer och icke-ideala brottsoffer, vilket har att göra med brottsoffrets karaktärstyp. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur studenter uppfattar brottsoffrets utsatthet, beroende på om brottsoffret är idealt eller icke-idealt. Studien har använt en mixed design vilket innebär att de finns både en kvantitativ och en kvalitativ analys. Undersökningen genomfördes på så sätt att respondenter fick läsa en av två berättelser och besvara en tillhörande enkät. Resultaten visar att det finns skillnader i män och kvinnors uppfattning. Kvinnor ansåg att brottsoffrens utsatthet var lika allvarligt oavsett karaktärstyp medan män ansåg att det ideala brottsoffrets utsatthet var allvarligare än det icke-ideala. Kvinnor uppfattar däremot att det icke-ideala brottsoffret hade utsatts för stalkning i högre utsträckning än det ideala, medan män bedömde motsatsen. Respondenterna ansåg att brottsoffren skulle hantera sin utsatta position genom att bland annat anmäla och kontakta sina närstående. Det övergripande resultatet i studien visar att majoriteten studenter uppfattar stalkning som allvarligt men skillnaden är hur allvarligt respondenterna anser att utsattheten är.
