(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

In criminology the question remains unanswered in what way a person can feel group pressure, and subsequently come to delinquent behaviour through this pressure. Several theories are discussed and brought together in one model in order to answer the following questions: What is group pressure? What are the consequences of group pressure for the individual? How can group pressure be recognized? What can be done to reduce group pressure?
