La victimation de proximité, les précautions et la peur : Etude sur la cohésion sociale de voisinage

Abstract : Neighbourhoods, different by the density of their inhabitants, by their wealth and by the frequentation of people who do not live locally, differently expose their residents to crime. In addition, precautions against crime and levels of fear are in coherence with local victimization. Two types of neighbourhood do not fit well with this classical approach in urban sociology: the wealthy inner city ones and the poorest. Although opposed by their ecological characteristics, both have the same high level of local victimization. In addition, this high level does not help to understand the precautions against crime and the level of fear. Our interpretation deals with social cohesion at the local level and ideas that the inhabitants have about it. In those two types of area, inhabitants do not have the same conception of delinquency to which they are exposed.
