Evolutions in Counter-Terrorism

The International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT) has recently published a special edition release, Evolutions in Counter-Terrorism. This special edition is separated into two volumes featuring a variety of publications that explore the past and present in counter-terrorism research. Volume I: Reflections from the Last Decade presents five counter-terrorism publications selected from the last ten years that were “particularly impactful or otherwise memorable” to the former directors at ICCT:

  1. Why Communication and Performance are Key in Countering Terrorism
  2. The Foreign Fighters Phenomenon in the European Union: Profiles, Threats and Policies
  3. The Turner Legacy: The Storied Origins and Enduring Impact of White Nationalism’s Deadly Bible
  4. The Practitioner’s Guide to the Galaxy – A Comparison of Risk Assessment Tools for Violent Extremism
  5. Re-Offending by Released Terrorist Prisoners: Separating Hype from Reality

In Volume II: Contemporary Developments, ICCT has chosen five current publications that demonstrate “valuable insights into some of the most unique and challenging issues in the field of counter-terrorism as faced by practitioners and researchers alike.”

  1. Incel Radical Milieu and External Locus of Control
  2. The Islamic State’s Global Insurgency and its Counterstrategy Implications
  3. Funding in Place: Local Financing Trends Behind Today’s Global Terrorist Threat
  4. Community and Gender in Counter-Terrorism Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for Transferability Across the Evolving Threat Landscape
  5. Normalisation, Party Politics and Vigilantism: Why the Next Terrorist Wave will not be Right-Wing Extremist
