We approach this multidimensional theme from various angles, with expertise across several teams and locations. Research projects focus on scanning and assessing the threat horizon, including the threat from the far right and lone actors. We also cover counter terrorism financing and terrorism in the media and online.

In addition, our work focuses on multiple large-scale assessments of the evidence base for efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism, including the need for a gender-related analytical approach and a deeper understanding of complex radicalisation processes. These research-based assessments are supplemented and reinforced through the implementation of several ongoing transnational programmes managed by RUSI.
