Critical Studies on Terrorism (CST)

The purpose of this BISA working group, is to provide an international network through which scholars working on terrorism-related subjects can stay in touch, exchange information on areas of common interest, disseminate research findings in a mutually supportive forum, build collaborative links, and promote the study of terrorism and terrorism-related issues in the academy and the wider public. It aims to create and maintain a community of scholars that will function to broaden and deepen the study of terrorism beyond a narrow security-oriented focus. The working group will be committed to the promotion of rigorous and internationally-recognised scholarship, and to the promotion of greater dialogue between critical terrorism scholars and security officials and practitioners, in an effort to widen and deepen the public debate on responses to terrorism. Related to this, there is a genuine need to promote public education of terrorism-related issues so that a better informed citizenry can properly participate in democratic public debate.

If you would like to become a member of this group, please contact one of the convenors.

To support this group join BISA, the annual funding is linked to the number of current BISA members affiliated to the group.
