Behind the corner lurks the danger : A quantitative study of social trust and the connection between the fear of being subjected to crime among students on the campus area in Växjö (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims to explain the phenomenon of fear of crime among students at the Linnaeus University campus area in Växjö. More precisely, the study deals with social trust between people, and the connection between trust and the fear of being subjected to crime. In recurrent national surveys, the results have shown that about one-third of the population in Sweden is largely concerned about being subjected to crime. Our hypothesis is that low interpersonal trust and low trust in social institutions creates anxiety and fear of it’s and society's well-being, which increases the fear of being subjected to crime. In multiple linear regression analyzes, we investigate whether there is any connection between trust and fear of being subjected to crime. The results are analyzed with the help of Anthony Giddens and Ulrich Beck and compared with results generated in previous research. The main result shows that connections exist, but it is not so strong and further studies are required in the area. The respondents feel confident in people in general, and rely on the institutions of society, but at the same time are concerned about everyday crime, going out alone late at night in the campus area and over sexual harassment aimed at women.
