The Aarhus Model: Preventing and Dealing with Radicalisation in Aarhus

On the 11th of December 2018, the Human Security programme had the pleasure of welcoming Steffen Saigusa Nielsen, one of the key managers and designer of ”The Aarhus Model”, and Mette-Louise E. Johansen, Associate Professor at the Department of Anthropology, Aarhus University.

The Aarhus model is a multi-agency intervention program that aims to prevent violent radicalisation and help already radicalised people exit terrorist organisations and violent extremist groups. You can read more about the model here in The New York Times:

During the event, Steffen first gave a presentation on the Aarhus Model, whereupon Mette-Louse steered the debate. You can download Steffen’s PowerPoint here.
