Harsh competition and conflicts might perpetuate aggressive behaviour and violence. This research aims to comprehend how social relations and social context play a role in the development of aggressive behaviour and moral disengagement, and how concepts of prevention and intervention can be developed. The study was conducted qualitatively through indepth interviews of 14 male participants, aged 15–25, who were charged with homicide and were sent to corrective facilities to serve their sentence. Low levels of education and limited insight directed them to pro-aggression solutions as a primary way to resolve conflicts. More problems have evolved in correctional facilities as a result of overcrowding and limited resources for effective programmes. Prevention strategies for youth to not engage in delinquent behaviours should target families as well as peer groups and communities. School-based programmes can prevent delinquency, antisocial behaviour, and early school drop-out in order to prevent the onset of adult criminal careers, thus reducing the cost of crime to society. Most incarcerated individuals are vulnerable participants who are at risk of recidivism. Therefore, analysis for improvement of corrective facilities is also needed to humanise incarcerated people and reduce recidivism.
