Football hooliganism or soccer hooliganism  is disorderly, violent or destructive behaviour perpetrated by spectators at association football events. Other English-language terms commonly used in connection with hooligan firms include "army", "boys", "bods", " casuals ", and "crew". Certain clubs have long-standing rivalries with other clubs and hooliganism associated with matches between them sometimes called local derbies is likely to be more severe. Conflict may take place before, during or after matches. Participants often select locations away from stadiums to avoid arrest by the police, but conflict can also erupt spontaneously inside the stadium or in the surrounding streets.

Just published in the Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology, new research from Alain Van Hiel at the University of Ghent Belgium and colleagues that seeks to understand the origins of football hooliganism. Although focused on aggressive football fans, their results also have some implications for understanding other circumstances where individuals in groups become violent e. Football violence, so the authors of this paper tell us, has been around since the late Nineteenth Century, and is thus as old as the game itself. Psychologists trying to explain violent group conduct have approached it from two different though not mutually exclusive perspectives: an individual differences approach, in which, it is argued, individual differences variables like positive attitudes to violence explain violent behaviour; and a social identity approach, which assumes that individuals become violent in certain situations where they feel anonymous and therefore lack accountability. In this paper, van Hiel et al. Participants completed a survey booklet which included:.

V iolence s between supporters at football matches have become a part of everyday life. L egal systems are trying to provide appropriate answers to this negative phenomenon. Regarding the fact that Serbia is a signatory to the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, it is of the utmost importance to secure that acting of state authorities are in the line with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. At the same time, i t provides useful guidelines and boundaries for both the legislator and state bodies who are dealing with this specific problem. Consequently, the paper analyzes two decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, concerning the police detention of fans for the purpose of preventing violence at football matches. The authors pay special attention to the standards and conditions that the respective state is obliged to fulfill in a specific case. Authors also offer , where that seems necessary, an appropriate critical opinion.
Pledging lifelong loyalty to an ingroup can have far-reaching behavioural effects, ranging from ordinary acts of ingroup kindness to extraordinary acts of self-sacrifice. What motivates this important form of group commitment? Here, we propose one especially potent answer to this question—the experience of a visceral sense of oneness with a group i. We further explored the hypothesis that fusion and lifelong loyalty are not merely a reflection of past time investment in a group, but also reflect a deeper, memory-based process of feeling personally shaped by key group events, both euphoric and dysphoric. We found broad support for these hypotheses.

When addressing public behaviour during mass emergencies and disasters, it is important to consider that such emergencies and disasters will often involve crowds. An understanding of emergency crowds is therefore crucial in ensuring that incidents are managed as effectively as possible. The elaborated social identity model of crowd behaviour emphasizes that the way in which emergency responders manage crowds during an incident can play a crucial role in determining how members of the public react. In this paper, we show how the social identity approach can be applied to best explain crowd behaviour during mass emergencies and disasters, and how this improved theoretical understanding can be used to generate specific recommendations for operational good practice during incident management. There is little doubt that the likelihood of mass emergencies is increasing, not least of all due to factors such as terrorism Meulenbelt and Nieuwenhuizen, ; North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO], and climate change Jones,
