Together with her colleague Sacharias Wiren and in partnership with the University of Cambridge, Umeå university and Uppsala university, Jane works with IC Sweden, an evidence-based intervention for young people at the intersection of public mental health promotion and prevention of black-and-white thinking, extremism and polarization.
