Abstract [en]

By launching the term "sense-making", our intention is to deepen the understanding of young people and risk. Seven focus group interviews were made in 2004/05, including three reference interviews with adults: four in an urban area (Greater Stockholm) and three in a rural area (the county of Jämtland). The results indicate that sense-making of risk is a fruitful way of capturing hidden heterogeneity among young people with similar risk perceptions. Young people in rural areas tend to make sense of risk according to us here, a collectivistic and embedded view of risk, while young people in urban areas have an individualistic and disembedded view, expressed according to me-there or me-where I am. This can be interpreted as such that young people´s sense-making of risk is based in different modernities, entangled with each other through e.g. global mass communication systems.
