Terrorism Research in a Polarized World

15th Annual International Conference

We invite proposals for paper presentations, panel proposals and/or posters on this year's theme of Terrorism Research in a Polarized World. 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 organising committee wishes to promote the work of graduate students (MA/MSc/PhD) in the area of terrorism research. All paper presentations submitted by graduate students will therefore be eligible for the award of Best Student Paper. The winner will have the written paper published in the peer- reviewed journal Behavioral Sciences of Terrorism and Political Aggression. A committee comprising of the STR Governing Board members, editors of the journal, and selected specialists will make the award decision.

The author(s) must initially submit an abstract by the general submission date of April 24th 2023. At the time of abstract submission, they must indicate that they wish their paper to be considered for the Student Paper Contest. It is only after their abstract is accepted that competition entrants should send a full paper to the conference organisers. All those papers eligible for consideration must be submitted by July 15th 2023 to conferencestr2023@iscte-iul.pt

The paper must comply with the author guidelines for the journal. For details visit https://www.tandfonline.com/ac...


To be eligible for the student paper contest the primary author’s presentation of the paper at the Conference is required. The primary author should be a current graduate student studying through a third level institution.

Alternatively, they must have successfully completed their graduate studies since January 1st 2023.

We will update this shortly
