Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att studera hur före detta kriminella väljer att framställa sig själva genom sina livsberättelser. Vi ämnar undersöka ungdomar som har ett kriminellt liv bakom sig, genom att lyssna på deras livshistorier. Genom dessa berättelser vill vi få fram vilka faktorer respondenterna anser varit väsentliga under deras väg genom det kriminella och vilka vändpunkter som funnits under denna tid. Den narrativa metoden valdes som verktyg för att söka svar på våra frågeställningar. Materialet samlades in genom kvalitativa intervjuer med nio före detta kriminella ungdomar som är aktiva i Unga KRIS. Teorin som användes har rötter inom symbolisk interaktionism. Resultatet har varit att utanförskap och uppmärksamhet i ung ålder är en viktig faktor enligt många av respondenterna för att ett kriminellt beteende ska utvecklas. I äldre åldrar blir gruppdynamiken och berusningsmedel väsentliga faktorer som lett till att de fortsatt med det kriminella. Respondenternas vändpunkter har funnits i olika former och lett till stora skillnader i sina liv. 

Abstract [en]

This study aims to study how former criminals choose to portray themselves through their life- stories . We intend to study young former criminals, by listening to their lifestory. Through these stories, we want to find out which factors our respondents believe has been essential during their way through the criminal life and which turning points that have existed during this time. We chose the narrative method as a tool to seek answers to our question. The material was collected through interviews with nine former criminal youth, who are active in Unga KRIS. The theory used, has its roots in symbolic interactionism. The result has been that exclusion and attention at a young age, is an important factor as for many of our respondents. In older ages group dynamics and intoxicants are significant factors that led to the continuation of the criminal according to our respondents. Our respondents’ turning points have been found in various forms and lead to large differences in our respondents' lives.
