Examining the aftermath of a key incident in the study of terrorism, this narrative places readers in the perspective of key actors as they navigate important dilemmas in the field of counter-terrorism.
ICCT’s work focuses on themes at the intersection of countering violent extremism and criminal justice sector responses, as well as human rights related aspects of counter- terrorism. The major project areas concern countering violent extremism, rule of law, foreign fighters, country and regional analysis, rehabilitation, civil society engagement and victims’ voices.
It is informed and inspired by both work produced through ICCT over the last decade, but also a real-world case study. Its aims are to inform the audience on the multitude of complexities associated with the field of counterterrorism, as well as to provoke curiosity about this field, and even empathy for the tough choices that have to sometimes be made. It is also intended as a tool for disseminating our research on counter-terrorism through a choice-based narrative, placing readers in the perspective of key actors after a terror attack.
The scenarios are the attack itself; the trial and prosecution of the perpetrator; and the aftermath and lessons learned following. You will be able to explore these chapters via the perspectives persons associated with law enforcement and probation; the trial and prosecution; policymakers; a journalist; and a member of the public.
Each chapter and question offer a point of consideration and reflection for the audience. They also provide the reader additional readings from ICCT work in the past, as well as real-world examples from a case study that will be revealed as the narrative moves forward.
