The Parameters of Terror: The Copenhagen Shootings and the Renegotiations of Danish Cultural Codes in the Civil Sphere, 2015-2020


Through a civil sphere theory CTS framework that combines analyses of communicative,legislative, and material institutions and an ethnographic methodology, this project sets out toprovide new empirically based research on how the Danish civil sphere has coped with terrorismand renegotiated the boundaries of solidarity between majority and minority citizens followingthe attacks. It does so based on an extreme deviant case study of Danish Jews roles andexperiences of these events as this minority group has had a fundamental role in shaping anddefining the ethno-religious minority space in the Danish civil sphere since the formation of themodern Danish nation state.
