Extreme Humanculture was founded by the anthropologist, researcher and consultant Tina Wilchen Christensen. For almost 20 years, I have provided research, consultancy services and teaching on how people create meaning and context through social participation and learning.
I hold an MSc in Social Anthropology and a PhD in Social Psychology, and possess expert knowledge of radicalisation processes, extremism, exit programmes and methods of support for people who are disengaging from extremist environments.
I am writing articles for scientific and popular scientific journals, magazines and online publications, both nationally and internationally, on the pathways into and out of extremist groups.
I have performed field work among former Swedish right-wing extremists, French-speaking Maronites in Lebanon and English-speaking top executives in an international company. In Denmark, I have amongst many other anthropological project investigated former extremists ways of out extreme movements, women entrepreneurs, and have observed the interaction of social case managers with their clients. I can thus carry out qualitative surveys both in Denmark and abroad, and I am used to interviewing people and participating socially and professionally in all of the Scandinavian languages, as well as in English and French.
At the moment I work as a mentorship advisor with the EU-funded project ‘Strengthening Resilience to Violent Extremism’ in the Horn of Africa, for the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in Nairobi, Kenya.
