Project description

To investigate perpetrators of aggression on public transport aims to gain research insights into the causal chain leading to the emergence of violent incidents on public transport so that a structural approach to aggression can be developed on public transport. The research aims to identify the motivational and inhibitory factors that play a role in the establishment and the further development of a violent incident on the one hand and the de-escalation, and the control of the conflict on the other hand. Attention is given to the distal and proximal causes of aggression.
