Fear of Crime and Terrorism Among Israeli and Swedish Citizens

2018 (English)In: Refugees and Migrants in Law and Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for Global Civic Education / [ed] Helmut Kury & Sławomir Redo, Springer, 2018, p. 577-595Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The objective of the chapter is to broaden the understanding of the determinants of fear of crime and fear of terrorism while expanding the existing literature. Israel and Sweden provide case studies of two countries with a relatively similar population size, whereas their cultures are inherently different in their attitude toward terrorism and refugees. Several conclusions can be drawn from this study. The findings show higher rates of fear of crime and terrorism in the Israeli group than among the Swedes, despite the similar rates of actual exposure to crime. This finding could be explained by the Israeli society's higher exposure to terrorism. In addition, the comparison between the Israeli and Swedish samples may indicate the significance of cultural explanation in accounting for differences between the two groups, especially with regard to fear of being a victim of crime. It is suggested that the diverse perception of the government's responsibility for preventing the negative effects and of the "other" as a source of harm may account for the higher rates of fear of crime among Israelies explain this finding. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.
