Abstract
Supporting on important criminological research and theories as differential association theory, social bonding theory and contemporary influential theories, such as the situational action theory, morality is seen as a very important cause of crime . A number of studies have found that morality is significantly related to offending (Chapple et al., 2005; Hirschi 1969; Jan Stams et al., 2006; Svensson et al., 2010; Antonaccio & Tittle, 2008). Within this context of morality, this contribution will focus on moral support for right wing extremism of Flemish youngsters between the age of 16 and 25 years old. Based on collected data from a mixed mode survey (paper and pencil and web survey) by more than 2,800 Flemish respondents the present study aims to increase insight in the influence of five theoretical concepts (social integration, discrimination, procedural justice, interpersonal attitudes and peer influences) on moral support and the impact of the latter on the use of violence.
