Overview

Lone actors, or “lone wolves”, are a phenomenon ICCT has been focusing on for years, by looking at their court trials, environments and possible ways of preventing the phenomenon. Currently, the Centre is involved in the Countering Lone Actor Terrorism (CLAT) project, which aims to collect and analyse data on lone actors and provide policy recommendations on how to respond to this issue.

On terrorist groups, the Centre has had a closer look at the workings, structures, regional impact and other factors, mainly by research on groups such as Al Qaeda and its various affiliates, Ansar al-Sharia Tunisia, the Hofstad group and Boko Haram. Additionally, ICCT focuses on different actors in terrorist groups, for example by examining the role women play in these organisations.
