Crime, Victimization and Vulnerability in Malmö

Khoshnood, Ardavan LU and Väfors-Fritz, Marie (2019)
Abstract
Malmö and its inhabitants are living in a historical era and in a changing environment – in a city that has grown with 43 percent since 1990. Crime, Victimization and Vulnerability in Malmö presents a selection of current research, and the impact that crime, victimization and vulnerability have had on Malmö since the early 2000s.

Crime, Victimization and Vulnerability in Malmö addresses topics such as gun and explo-sive violence, arson, offender characteristics, hate crime and victimological aspects. The book also discusses the link between crime and substance abuse, presents a crime victim study of EU citizens, and invites readers to listen in on a conversation between a criminolo-gist and an active-duty police officer.

Crime, Victimization and Vulnerability in Malmö addresses topics such as gun and explo-sive violence, arson, offender characteristics, hate crime and victimological aspects. The book also discusses the link between crime and substance abuse, presents a crime victim study of EU citizens, and invites readers to listen in on a conversation between a criminolo-gist and an active-duty police officer. Finally, a psychiatrist reflects on how society’s inte-raction with people with antisocial problems has changed over time.

The book has a clear link to Malmö, but can be used to understand crime, victimization and vulnerability in other places. Readers are encouraged to reflect critically on crime, victimization and vulnerability, and on how these are portrayed both in the media and in the book itself. The hope is that this book will contribute to the discussion on Malmö’s crime, victimization and vulnerability and that it will inspire thoughts, questions and curiosity about criminology as a subject.

Abstract (Swedish)
Malmö stad och dess invånare rör sig i en historisk tid och i en föränder­­lig miljö: sedan 1990 har staden vuxit med 43 procent. I Brottslighet och utsatthet i Malmö presenteras ett axplock av aktuell forskning, dess tillämpning och den påverkan som brottsligheten och utsattheten har och har haft på Malmö sedan början av 2000-talet.

Brottslighet och utsatthet i Malmö tar upp ämnen som skjutvapens- och explosionsvåld, anlagda bränder och gärningsmannakaraktäristika, samt vad hatbrott och viktimologiska aspekter är. Kopplingen mellan brott och missbruk diskuteras och läsaren får ta del av en brottsofferstudie av EU-medborgare samt följa ett samtal mellan en kriminologisk forskare och en aktiv polis.

Malmö stad och dess invånare rör sig i en historisk tid och i en föränder­­lig miljö: sedan 1990 har staden vuxit med 43 procent. I Brottslighet och utsatthet i Malmö presenteras ett axplock av aktuell forskning, dess tillämpning och den påverkan som brottsligheten och utsattheten har och har haft på Malmö sedan början av 2000-talet.

Brottslighet och utsatthet i Malmö tar upp ämnen som skjutvapens- och explosionsvåld, anlagda bränder och gärningsmannakaraktäristika, samt vad hatbrott och viktimologiska aspekter är. Kopplingen mellan brott och missbruk diskuteras och läsaren får ta del av en brottsofferstudie av EU-medborgare samt följa ett samtal mellan en kriminologisk forskare och en aktiv polis. Avslutningsvis reflekterar en psykiater kring hur samhällets samspel med individer med antisocial problematik har förändrats över tid.

Boken har en tydlig anknytning till Malmö, men kan med fördel även användas för att förstå brottslighet och utsatthet på andra ställen i landet. Läsare uppmuntras att kritiskt reflektera över brottslighet och utsatthet och hur detta illustreras såväl i media som i denna bok. Förhoppningen är att den ska utgöra ett bidrag till diskussionen om Malmös brottslighet och utsatthet och att den ska väcka tankar, frågor och en nyfikenhet på kriminologi som ämne. (Less)
