ICCT RESEARCH PAPERS 2022
The ICCT Threat Assessment provides data about the numbers, geographical distribution, and modus operandi of terrorist attacks.
The Algerian Hirak is a popular non-violent protest movement pursuing systemic change in Algeria that has pressured the Algerian government for political transition since 16 February 2019. This research paper examines al-Qaeda commentary on the Hirak through qualitative content analysis and identifies shifts in propaganda messaging. The research also seeks to contribute towards a gap in the literature by addressing a not commonly discussed subject matter within terrorism studies and providing grounding for future case studies exploring similar themes.
This research paper seeks to examine the right-wing military-extremism nexus by surveying potential consequences arising from the presence of right-wing extremists within Western militaries.
This research paper retells the stories of an individual’s journey to join, dwell and fight for ISIS by examining Zafirr Golamaully’s series of blogs called ‘Dusty Feet’.
This policy brief examines prospects for international cooperation with the unrecognised Taliban government in order to counter terrorism in Afghanistan, consistent with international law.
Following the announcement of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Taliban seized large quantities of small arms and light weapons (SALW). This policy brief explores the purposes for which the Taliban use these newly acquired ‘spoils of war’, ranging from fighting rival group ISK-P and controlling territory to financing their activities and propaganda purposes.
The policy brief makes the case that policymakers and practitioners need to consider how P/CVE programmes engage in public relations (PR), specifically in communicating transparently. P/CVE programmes can benefit from greater community support and trust by engaging in public relations.
This policy brief analyse how the Militia violent extremists (MVEs) pose a growing threat within the United States. MVEs were the most prominent and well-organised participants in the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol and have plotted numerous acts of lethal violence against law enforcement, government officials, and civilians in the past decade.
This policy brief aims to assess how displacement simultaneously constitutes one of the most tangible symptoms as well as a potentially aggravating factor of the Sahel crisis.
