Samantha Kutner (@ashkenaz89) wrote an in-depth analysis of the Proud Boys, to provide insight on how broader themes of self-categorization, precarity, and deliberate provocation in crypto-fascist extremist organisations manifest themselves (2/6) icct.nl/publication/sw…
Jacob Ware's (@Jacob_A_Ware) detailed and comparative analysis of terrorist manifestoes used by the violent Far-Right highlights common themes and key implications for counterterrorism scholars and practitioners (3/6) icct.nl/publication/te…

And we're live! Click the link to join our Live Briefing on al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in West Africa with @TheSoufanCenter's @ColinPClarke and our own @Julie_Coleman. Cooperation or competition? Looking forward to an engaging Q&A to follow!
zoom.us/j/106685184 Image
To kick us off, @ColinPClarke drives home the point that these groups are not monolithic entities—regardless of what’s happening in the Sahel, something entirely different could be happening in other local contexts, like Southeast Asia. Join in here: zoom.us/j/106685184
.@ColinPClarke: In recent years, AQ has done a good job of staying under the radar—where it likes to be. ISIS has borne the brunt of the West: this has allowed AQ to effectively ingratiate itself in local communities in this region.

The ICCT would like to thank all its respected authors, reviewers, and readers for their patience during the #COVID_19 outbreak. We realize it is a pandemic which significantly disrupts professional processes such as the peer review process. Image
As priorities of work will have to give way to others, the ICCT acknowledges the possibility of longer reviewing and editing times, so we kindly ask for your patience.
In the meantime, we are still looking for submissions for our ten-year anniversary Special Edition. For more details, see below.

Happy new year from all at ICCT! 2019 saw the continued aftermath of the fall of the caliphate, the (attempted) returns and prosecutions of FTFs, and the persistent rise of right-wing extremist attacks in the West. Take a look back at 2019 through some of this year's research! Image
With the end of the caliphate came the detention of #ISIS fighters, supporters, and innocent civilians alike in camps like #alHol and #AinIssa; @GinaAVale of @ICSR_Centre and @warstudies analysed the role of IS-affiliated women in these camps and beyond. icct.nl/publication/wo…
During the caliphate, ISIS specifically targeted children and adolescents, combining religious indoctrination and weapons training to mould them into child soldiers. @janilkiz provided recommendations for the psychosocial care for these ex-child soldiers.
