Feeling unsafe in a multicultural neighbourhood has been related – especially in the case of indigenous inhabitants – to the presence of groups (young, immigrant) of men in public space. However, indigenous inhabitants differ in their response to the presence of immigrant men. How can this be explained? In this article we give an answer to this question based on data from qualitative and quantitative research on the experience of safety of indigenous inhabitants on a square where immigrant men meet each other. Our research is exploratory in nature; our goal is to see whether inter-ethnic social involvement has added value over general social involvement as an explanation of the experience of fear of crime. We conclude that our thesis of the relevance of inter-ethnic social involvement for explaining of the experience of safety is sustained by our material. Therefore we advise that interethnic social involvement should be integrated in future quantitative studies on the fear of crime.
