ICCT Director Mark Singleton on Istanbul and Jakarta attacks

On 16 January 2016, ICCT Director Mark Singleton was interviewed by Peter de Bie and Meike van der Weij of the Dutch news broadcast Nieuwsshow on NPO Radio 1.

In the interview, Mark Singleton comments on the recent attacks in Istanbul and Jakarta, and gives a broader assessment of current Western counter-terrorism policies. Referring in particular to comments made by U.S. presidential candidate Marco Rubio on pursuing a tough stance against the so-called “Islamic State”, Singleton argues that such an approach has been proven ineffective, and that preventative measures need to be part of any successful strategy to counter Islamist extremism and radicalisation.
