Rohan Stevenson

Rohan Stevenson is a PhD candidate in Political, Societal and Regional Changes at the University of Helsinki’s Centre for European Studies. His research is funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions doctoral network VORTEX (Coping with Varieties of Radicalisation into Terrorism and Extremism). Rohan’s research examines counterterrorism policies in Europe and how they have been applied (or not applied) to extreme right-wing violence. At the moment, he is particularly interested in using the work of Foucault to think about such questions.  Originally hailing from London, Rohan holds an MA (Hons) in Geography from the University of Edinburgh and an MA in Sociology from Goldsmiths College, University of London. His research interests are eclectic and previously he has studied everything from eco-fascist online groups to ‘gig economy’ workers to underground music subcultures. He is a firm believer in the compatibility of academic research and political activism.
