The Aarhus Model
The Aarhus Model is the strategy for prevention Radicalisation and violent Extremism in the City of Aarhus, Denmark. The program focuses on early prevention of Radicalisation and Extremism. The work carried out is a collaboration between East Jutland Police and Aarhus Municipality, and is undertaken as a supplement to the existing crime prevention initiatives. As far as possible, the work uses existing criminal prevention initiatives and procedures, which are supplemented by an intersectional and interdisciplinary working group with specific knowledge of radicalization. The Aarhus Model offers a variety of interventions and effort towards individuals, groups, communities and the public in general, i.e. a mentor program, exit program and awareness creating activities.
