The Future of Terrorism and Terrorism Research

14th Annual International Conference

We invite proposals for paper presentations, panel proposals and/or posters on this year's theme of The Future of Terrorism and Terrorism Research. In addition to showcasing new research on terrorism, the goal of the conference will be to consider what the future of terrorism and, indeed, terrorism research might look like by 2030.

The conference seeks to stimulate discussion around fundamental questions, including:

  • How do we build meaningful and sustainable relationships between the research, policy and practice communities?
  • How do we maximise impact from the research that is undertaken?
  • How do we enhance innovation in terrorism research and harness expertise in other disciplines as well as researchers that may not have considered themselves to have a role in terrorism studies?
  • How do we achieve this while continuing to address contemporary terrorism-related issues?

The call for papers is now closed - Notification of acceptance e mails will be sent out on May 16th 2022.

Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals.
