Mutual Hostility in Young People's Everyday Life: : Is this What Characterizes High-Criminal Youth? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vissa ungdomar utmärks av att de utsätter andra för hostilitet i en viss vardagsmiljö. Andra ungdomar utmärks av att de utsätts för hostilitet av andra i samma miljö. En tredje grupp av ungdomar utmärks av att de både utsätter andra för hostilitet och utsätts för andras hostilitet i den miljön. Det förklarar ”ömsesidig hostilitet” för de ungdomarna. Syftet med studien var att se om ungdomar som själv rapporterade hög kriminalitet utmärktes av att de levde med ”ömsesidig hostilitet” i olika vardagsmiljöer – hemma, i skolan och på fritiden. Urvalet bestod av 2009 ungdomar i ålder 13-15 år från en mellanstor stad i Sverige. Data användes ifrån redan befintlig forskning utifrån olika skolor. Enkäter var utformade med frågor om hostilitet och kriminalitet. Resultaten visade att de ungdomar som upplevde ömsesidig hostilitet i olika vardagsmiljöer var kriminaliteten specifik högre. Ju fler olika miljöer ungdomen upplevde ömsesidig hostilitet i desto högre var den självskattade kriminaliteten.

Abstract [en]

Some youths are characterized by exposing others to hostility in a particular environment. Other young people are characterized by being exposed to hostility from others in the same environment. A third group of youngsters are characterized by both exposing others to hostility, and exposed to other people's hostility in the environment, explained "mutual hostility" for these young people. In this study the aim was to examine whether the young people who were high-criminal distinguished that they lived with "mutual hostility" in everyday environments - at home, at school and at spare time. The sample consisted of 2009 adolescents aged 13-15 years from a medium-sized city in Sweden who participated in a research project. The data from two questionnaires hostility and criminality were analyzed. The results showed that the young people who were experiencing mutual hostility in everyday environments engaged more in criminal activities. The study showed that youths who experienced mutual hostility in many different environments, were significant higher in self-reported crime.
