Reconceptualising Fear of Crime: Emergence of Crime Awareness

  • Madeleine Jarrett-Luck

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

This conceptual thesis seeks to reformulate the ‘fear of crime’ concept in light of the notions about risk, pre-eminence of global threats over domestic offending, the proliferation of information-sharing through social media which has strengthened our ‘connectedness’ and the seeming ubiquity of some crime prevention mechanisms that has led to a view of them as banal. The thesis reflects the complexity of Fear Of Crime and provides new avenues for the exploration of risk perceptions, social trust, and the apparent banality of prevention.
