Given the political imperatives and speed with which counter-terrorism policies and strategies are implemented, often in response to terrorist attacks, counter-terrorism instruments are rarely evaluated and are often based on untested assumptions. To address the lack of systematic analyses of past and current activities, ICCT has created a Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning programme to assess the effectiveness of various strategies, policies and individual implementation activities.

Furthermore, ICCT is involved in the European Commission-funded project on Counter-terrorism Monitoring, Reporting and Support Mechanism (CT MORSE), and has published several research papers on the topic.
