Profil

Christian is Associate Professor in Human Security at Aarhus University and the coordinator of the international Master’s degree program in Human Security (see www.humansecurity.dk). 

Christian is a co-principal investigator in the Konfliktråd Impact Project (KIP), which started on 1 September 2017. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) seeks to establish the best practice for Danish victim-offender meetings in terms of victim wellbeing and offender recidivism by comparing the current Danish mediation practice, Konfliktråd, with an alternative approach, restorative justice conferences. While several RCTs have compared the effects of restorative justice versus no restorative justice, KIP will be the first RCT in the world that compares the effects of two different restorative justice models.

In addition to the project mentioned above, Christian is also doing cross-disciplinary research on transitional justice, nation-building, and cultural heritage. His recent publications include A Discourse on African Philosophy: A New Perspective on Ubuntu and Transitional Justice in South Africa, Lexington Books, 2017. In addition to his research, Christian is working with conflict management in practice as a victim-offender mediator for the police in Eastern Jutland.
