Online & offline risk behaviours

Social influence

 

Janneke Schokkenbroek is a junior researcher at the research group for Media, Innovation and Communication Technologies, as well as the Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy (IRCP) at Ghent University. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in (Social) Psychology (Utrecht University) and a Master’s Degree in Behavioural Science at Radboud University Nijmegen.

In September 2019, she started working as a PhD student at Ghent University under supervision of Prof. dr. Wim Hardyns (Department of Criminology, Criminal Law and Social Law) and Prof. dr. Koen Ponnet (Department of Communication Sciences). The general aim of this FWO- funded joint PhD project is to examine how online and offline risk behaviours take place and interplay, and how online and offline social factors play a role in this.

Part of the data collection for her project is realized through the Social Capital and Neighborhoods (SCAN) project: Each year, a large-scale survey is conducted among citizens of Ghent, in which they are questioned about their social environment, their risk behaviours and their victim and/or perpetrator experience regarding these risk behaviours.
