Radicalisation and counter terrorism

Researchers at the ECU Security Research Institute have been working on projects to achieve a more thorough understanding of the radicalisation process in order to counter the threat of 'home-grown' terrorism in Australia. ECU Security Research Institute academics have contributed to national forums on counter terrorism and radicalisation.

We have also been involved in research on religious authority, Internet radicalisation and the antecedents to terrorism.
