Attack Against Hungarian State Television Headquarters — The Realities of the Police Officers

  • Mihály Fogarasi

Abstract

This study presents the results of group-representations of police officers who participated in the 18 September 2006 attack against the Hungarian State Television headquarters. The results of this research highlight the common sense of the police officers involved in the incident. These common senses were created by social construction. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with the purpose of comparing the social representation of police officers who took an active role in the protection of the HQ with reserve officers who had not been involved in the situation. The texts were analysed using the sequential-transformative-model. There were both similarities and differences between the social representation components of the two groups concerning the incident.
