Terrorism and Political Violence

The research group on terrorism and political violence studies the phenomena of terrorism-related and other politically motivated violence.

Bart Schuurman

How can we explain IS attacks in the Middle East and Western countries? Is a new right-wing extremist wave of terrorism in the making? How do state and society deal with these attacks? What are the international responses towards terrorist threats? Our research group studies these and more questions from different theoretical perspectives. To do so, the group members collect new empirical data and interact with the policy community and public through lectures, media appearances and policy consulting
