International Centre for Counter-Terrorism

Operating out of The Hague, the ICCT “… aims to translate its research and analysis findings into practical, solutions-oriented policy recommendations that support policymakers and practitioners in their daily work. Building on its growing expertise in these areas, ICCT aims to contribute to the design and implementation of comprehensive and more systemic global, regional and national counter-terrorism strategies and activities.” To these ends, the ICCT sponsors projects and research on terrorism topics that occur around the world. One of the more interesting research  focal points is on CT Strategic Communications, or how terror organizations use social media in their campaigns. For example, one paper details the evolution of IS media over the years; it is based on primary sources and well as in-country fieldwork. There are dozens of publications listed at this valuable site; all research papers and policy briefs have undergone peer review.

      I am just sorry it took me so long to find you. Your reports are most informative and solidly researched. Here at NJCU, we have a doctoral program in security studies so I am always looking for reputable sources to pass on to the faculty and students.
