To facilitate dissemination, discussion and learning we have provided this interim report, which focuses in detail on two of our three phase 1 observations, but also bases its preliminary conclusions on data from the third. The background theoretical context for this work draws extensively on the Elaborated Social Identity Model of crowd behaviour (ESIM). This theoretical approach is a framework for understanding risk management in the context of crowd events and has considerable policy impact at a global level in the policing context. For a list of relevant research studies see Stott & Pearson, 2014. The project is designed to contribute directly to reforms to organisational practices in respect to safety and security in Swedish football.
