What is antisocial behaviour?

In this video René Veenstra will explain that opinions differ about what we exactly mean with antisocial behaviour.
TINA KRETSCHMER: Welcome to this module on anti-social behaviour. Let’s first find out what anti-social behaviour actually means. If you different people, you’re probably going to get different answers. Some find it anti-social if people put their full bin bags out their front door instead of taking them to the garbage collection. Others are thinking of vandalised bus shelters or trains covered in graffiti. Scientists have been discussing for many years what anti-social behaviour means and use questionnaires to measure whether someone’s behaviour is anti-social.

In the next steps we will deal with antisocial behaviour. Examples of antisocial behaviour can be intentionally destroying things, stealing or taking part in fights.

In this video you will learn that opinions differ about what we exactly mean with antisocial behaviour.
