Interpretation of problematic youth group behaviour

Interpretation of problematic youth group behaviour

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Offending behaviour in adolescence occurs mainly in groups; accordingly, youth groups, nuisance-causing conduct and crime follow on from each other. Until 2015, the shortlist methodology was used to interpret the nature and severity of offending behaviour of youth groups in the public domain.
Youth groups were classified as bothersome, nuisance-causing or criminal. Since 2015, a new methodology is being used: the group scan.

This can be translated into the following central problem:
‘How can local partners give a uniform interpretation of problematic group behaviour, its relationship with the living environment and the conduct of members in the group? How can this interpretation contribute to the coordination between partners in the chain regarding the tasks and responsibilities involved in dealing with a group?’
This research question was translated into theoretical/scientific questions and more practice-oriented questions.
