At the beginning of March 2012, ICCT began a project to look into future trends and scenario-development relating to terrorism and counter-terrorism, featuring innovative thinkers and future analysts.

By utilising a knowledge pool outside of the established counter-terrorism community and security experts, the aim and hope of this project is to provide fresh perspectives on the future of (counter-)terrorism. The project is based on an ICCT Research Paper by Prof. Dr. Edwin Bakker, published in July 2012, that provides an overview of recent (counter)-terrorism future foresight studies and their results. Subsequently, this paper and a survey will be disseminated amongst a broad audience to receive feedback to help inform our knowledge of future trends in terrorism.
