Title STUNDA : Examining experiences of situational fear of crime through smartphone applications among young adults in Malmö
Author Kronkvist, Karl ; Engström, Alexander
Date 2018
English abstract
A situational dimension is often discussed in the fear of crime research but most studies rarely adopt a genuine situational data collection methodology. However, recent technological developments and increased smartphone usage have contributed to innovative methods and better opportunities to collect adequate situational data. Drawing upon the inventive approach by Solymosi, Bowers and Fujiyama (2015) this presentation will give insight into an ongoing research project where the feasibility of collecting information about experiences of fear of crime by using a smartphone application among young adults in Malmö (Sweden) is examined. The smartphone application, STUNDA, aims to collect traditional survey data but is also designed to gather situational data through Experience Sampling Method (ESM). ESM research encourages study participants to answer questions related to experiences and feelings as they occur in a specific point in time and the methodology is well-suited for integration in a smartphone application. The participants are requested to report their experiences of fear of crime at the specific moment as they receive a push notification but they can also report experiences retrospectively. By collecting data about experiences of fear of crime and provide these with a spatiotemporal stamp, this situational research may contribute with new knowledge of relevance for fear of crime research.
