Research programme

Terrorism and Political Violence

The research group on terrorism and political violence studies the phenomena of (dealing with) terrorism related and other politically motivated violence.

It aims to contribute to the societal and academic debate on these phenomena. The research group aims to combine both policy-oriented research -contributing to evidence-based policies and a more nuanced debate on terrorism- and ‘fundamental’ research – causes of terrorism, historical comparisons, etc.  The approaches this research group would like to develop (further) in the coming years are the following:

  • Primary sources based empirical research on actors in the field of (counter) terrorism;
  • Interdisciplinary approach borrowing insights, theories and methodological approaches from research in related fields;
  • The use of multiple levels of analysis (macro, meso, micro)

 

Prof. dr. Edwin Bakker is the scientific director of the Institute of Security and Global Affairs. Dr. Marieke Liem heads the research group Terrorism and Political Violence.
