Abstract [en]

Juvenile criminality has been widely discussed in the public debate. But what is there to do about a phenomenon like juvenile criminality in Sweden. Many studies have shown the potential of lowering juvenile criminality if different actors would collaborate. This research aims to explore preventive work and cooperation between different actors working with youth in risk of crime in Angered, with a focus on Hjällbo and Hammarkullen. The study is based on social and situational theory. Data was collected through qualitiative methods; six interviews were taken with various stakeholders and written reports were used from the local board of crime prevention i.e.”Styrgruppen för Tryggare Hjällbo”. The study shows that parents have an important role to play when it comes to prevention of juvenile delinquency. Other important actors are the school, the police, the social services and last but not least local voluntary workers. An obstacle to successful prevention is that the social services and many of the local actors that work with juvenile crime prevention have different ideas about which methods are best to use to prevent youth at risk of entering a criminal career. Privacy is another obstacle that complicates crime prevention for young people in the study area. These two obstacles work against the mechanisms that need to work in order to prevent young people from choosing a criminal career.
