Anne Bitsch (b 1978, Denmark) is a Norwegian-Danish researcher and author with a PHD in social geography.

In her writing and research, she deals with among other things right-wing extremism, human rights, gender issues and sexual violence. In 2017 she was the recipient of the Critics’ Prize for the book Går du nå, er du ikke lenger min datter, which she wrote about neglect.

In 2021, her book Brorskapet about the murder of 15-year-old Benjamin Hermansen in 2001 was published. In the book, she highlights the radicalisation and militant nationalism that were motivating factors in the incident as well as the ensuing inadequate investigation and the failure to follow up on racist violence in Norway.
