Abstract [sv]

Rädsla är en av människans grundläggande känslor. Före terrorattacken mot World TradeCenter nionde september 2001 kände människor relativt liten rädsla för terrorattacker.Skogan och Maxfields teori Coping with crime användes för att se om studiens resultat kundeförklaras med hjälp av deras teori. Syftet var att beskriva och redogöra för människors rädslaatt utsättas för en terrorattack i Sverige. En kvantitativ metod genomfördes med hjälp av enenkät som skickades ut via det sociala forumet Facebook. Enkäten skickades ut en första gångden 22 mars. Efter att en terrorattack skedde i Stockholm skickades enkäten ut igen 10 aprilför att undersöka om rädslan förändrades i samband med en attack. Spearmansrangkorrelation användes för att se om det fanns ett samband mellan faktorer i teorin ochrädsla för att utsättas för terrorattacker. Ett Mann-Whitney U test genomfördes för att se omrädslan för att utsättas ändrades i samband med en attack. Resultatet visade på tresignifikanta resultat. Det fanns två signifikanta resultat från spearmans rangkorrelation, ettmellan kön och rädsla och ett mellan upplevd brottslighet i deltagarens närboende ochrädsla. Det tredje signifikanta resultatet uppvisades i Mann-Whitney U testet som visade atträdslan förändrades i samband med en terrorattack. Resultatet kunde till viss del förklarasmed Skogan och Maxfields teori coping with crime.

Abstract [en]

Fear is one of human basic feelings. Before the terrorist attack against the World TradeCenter on September 9, 2001, people felt relatively little fear of terrorist attacks. Skogans andMaxfields theory Coping with crime was used to see if the study results could be explained bytheir theory. The purpose was to describe and account for people's fear of being subjected toa terrorist attack in Sweden. A quantitative method was conducted using a survey sent out viathe social forum Facebook. The survey was sent out on 22 March. After a terrorist attack tookplace in Stockholm, the survey was sent out again on April 10 to investigate whether the fearof being subjected to a terrorist attack changed in connection with an attack. Spearman's rankcorrelation was used to see if there was a correlation between factors in the theory and fearof being subjected to terrorist attacks. A Mann-Whitney U test was conducted to see if the fearof exposure was changed in connection with an attack. The result showed three significantresults. There were two significant results from Spearman's rank correlation, one between sexand fear and one between perceived crime in neighbourhood and fear. The third significantresult was shown in the Mann-Whitney U test which showed that the fear was changed in thecontext of a terrorist attack. The result could to some extent be explained by Skogans andMaxfields theory coping with crime.
