Tom Carstensen

Very experienced all-round journalist with 12 years experience - mostly at Danish Broadcasting Corporation  - equivalent to BBC in Denmark. Worked for DR's "Deadline" (similar to Newsnight) for four years and "Orientering" - similar to BBC Radio 4 - for the past seven

Worked for two years as London Correspondent for several clients. I covered British current affairs for Orientering and Danish Broadcasting Corp. radio news. For SBS Broadcasting I covered The Premier League. 

I have done lots of radio and TV live reporting for the two main TV Channels in Demark as well as BBC, Canadian Broadcasting Corp, CBS Radio, Fox News, RTE and Al Jazeera.

I am also directing a TV doc for DR2 (similar to BBC2) on an emerging nationalist party Nye Borgerlige. They look quite secure in entering Danish Parliament in the next elections.

I have covered Danish society from top to bottom. From parliament to homeless and disenfranchised immigrant youth. I am the leading journalist in Denmark on nationalism in Europe, and I am finishing a book now on the subject. I have interviewed key persons from Front National, Golden Dawn, UKIP, Sweden Democrats, Vlaams Belang, NPD, Sinn Fein, Republican Sinn Fein, SNP, Lega Nord to name just some of them. I have written a book on hooliganism in Denmark and Europe as well.

I do a lot of work on football culture - mostly fan culture, fan rights, football politics such as club structure, policing etc. Right now in a weekly podcast and a blog. https://www.nordicbet.dk/da/blog/genpres-podcast/

BA in Journalism at University of Southern Denmark, January 2006. The Danish journalism education is designed so you’re a fully trained journalist when you get the BA. On top of extensive training in written journalism, radio and TV, the studies at University of Southern Denmark are very academic and focus on sociology, economy, and political science.

39 years. Currently living in central Copenhagen with my wife and our 6-year-old daughter.
