Abstract [en]

Informed by principles of environmental criminology, this study assesses patterns of sexual victimization among young riders of rail-bound public transportation using a sample of 1,122 university students in Stockholm, Sweden. Exploratory data analysis and logistic regression models underlie the methodology of the study. Findings indicate that the physical and social characteristics of transit environments have an impact on the likelihood of sexual victimization after controlling for individual factors. The theoretical and practical implications of these results are discussed.

Abstract [en]

This study makes use of a dataset recently collected among young people in Stockholm, Sweden (N = 1122), to investigate the impact of fear on young people?s mobility and precautionary behaviour, after controlling for previous victimization as well as situational characteristics of daily trips. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and logistic regression models underlie the methodology of the study. Previous victimization, especially for sexual crimes, triggers precautionary behaviour among young people using trains and the metro. Signs of poorly maintained transit environments also affect young riders? mobility patterns, as they state that they avoid particular stations or routes at particular times. Informed by principles of environmental criminology and the theory of fear of crime, the implications of the findings for both theory and practice are discussed.

Abstract [en]

The objective of this article is to assess whether, how and why young people’s safety perceptions vary along the trip. Informed by principles of environmental criminology, this study makes use of a dataset recently collected among young riders of public transportation (1,122 university students) in Stockholm, Sweden. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and logistic regression models underlie the methodology of the study. Findings indicate that safety perceptions of young riders are affected by previous experience of sexual crimes but are not affected by overall victimization. More importantly, being exposed to high crime environments on the way to the metro significantly reduces young people’s safety perceptions (but not on the way to bus stops), especially for men. Drunk people tend to affect women’s safety perceptions, especially in bus systems. The article finishes by discussing the implications of the results for future research and helps advocate more inclusion of young people’s safety needs when implementing safety and transportation policies.

Abstract [sv]

I februari år 2019 erhöll Avdelningen för Samhällsplanering och Miljö på KTH i uppdrag av Boverket att kartlägga aktuell teori och praktik för brottsförebyggande och trygghetsskapande fysiska åtgärder i Sverige. Målet med studien är inhämta och sammanställa kunskap om hur trygghetsskapande och brottsförebyggande perspektiv ser ut idag och vilka åtgärder som vidtas i utformningen av fysiska miljöer i de olika skedena av samhällsbyggnadsprocessen.

Den här rapporten bidrar till byggandet av kunskap inom hållbar stadsplanering med fokus på säkerhet och trygghet. Rapporten är en kartläggning av aktuell nationell och internationell teori och praktik för brottsförebyggande och trygghetsskapande fysiska åtgärder.

Abstract [en]

Safety and security are human rights - to feel free from risk and fear of danger is crucial for all people and a prerequisite for modern society. Safety promotes and encourages mobility, which is basic for an individual’s quality of life. This report presents Stockholm students' responses to a survey of experiences and perceptions of sexual harassment and sexual transit crimes in public transport conducted in May-June 2018 as part of an international study. The study contained 1,122 young people surveyed at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm and 309 students from Södertörn University in Huddinge. We investigated the victimization of sexual harassment and sexual crimes in transit environments, feelings of perceived security or lack thereof, and necessary improvements to make travel safer.

Abstract [sv]

Säkerhet och trygghet är mänskliga rättigheter –att känna sig fri från risk och rädsla för fara är avgörande för alla människoroch en förutsättning för det moderna samhället. Säkerhet garanterar, i enhållbar stad, varje person en plats att leva fri från fara och fri från rädsla.Säkerhet främjar och uppmuntrar också rörlighet, som är grundläggande förindividens livskvalitet. Men för kvinnor (och särskilt unga kvinnor) är dettainte en självklarhet. Denna rapport presenterar Stockholmsstudenters svar på en undersökning om erfarenheter och uppfattningar om sexuella trakasserier och brott i kollektivtrafik som genomfördes i maj-juni 2018 som en del av en internationell studie. De 1,122 ungdomar som tillfrågades studerar på KTH Kungliga tekniska högskolan i Stockholm och 309 studenter från Södertörns högskola in Huddinge. Vi undersökte viktimiseringen av sexuella trakasserier och sexuella brott i transitmiljöer, känslor av upplevd trygghet eller bristen på dessa samt nödvändiga förbättringar som kan göra resorna tryggare.
