The ICT would like to share with you our most recent publications and activities:

The war in Syria raises a whole array of legal and security issues – only they are rarely analyzed in tandem. The conference held on November 19th at ICT brought together humanitarian experts and security experts to discuss how humanitarian issues impact the security situation in Syria. Speakers addressed Syria’s refusal to allow humanitarian assistance in the country, the dire refugee crisis within Syria, the concerning spread of chemical capabilities to terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, the role of Russia in the conflict, and the prospects for accountability in Syria. 
The Future of Jihadism: From Theory to Policy
In Memory of Dr. Reuven Paz

Co-sponsored by the International Center for the Study of Radicalization, Kings College London (ICSR), Norwegian Defense Research Establishment (FFI) and International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT), the conference was held in London and discussed the future of Jihadism in both theory and practice. Speakers presented new conceptual models that help identify and analyze trends in the global jihad. Practically, the workshop advanced the discussion of global jihadism as a policy problem, by highlighting new policy challenges of the global jihad and seeking ways to counter the challenge posed by global jihadi actors.
