Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

Asking vital questions concerning the future directions of terrorism research, this topical Research Agenda dives into the current state, emerging methodologies and key trends of this emotive and controversial field.

Structured in four distinct sections, the book initially explores the major perspectives in terrorism studies research, before taking a theoretical approach to assess its methodologies including ethnography, interviews, social media and databases. Using a broad range of case studies, the book then tackles the major debates and controversies facing terrorism research today, including gender issues, the private sector, and ethics. Exploring the strengths, weaknesses and policy and practice impacts of this research, the book concludes with a forward-thinking look at the future directions terrorism studies can and should take.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach to this challenging research area, this timely book will prove vital to students and scholars studying terrorism, counterterrorism, security and conflict, alongside counterterrorism policymakers looking to innovate their future policies.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is a very timely volume that examines the state of terrorism studies as a discipline. It examines a range of pressing issues, including the development of a more cross-sector, interdisciplinary approach to the subject; the ethical issues involved and the need for more gender-based and non-Western perspectives. Highly recommended.’
– Kumar Ramakrishna, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

‘This is not just a marvellously comprehensive overview of a maturing research field but also hints at a brave new vision for what terrorism research can, and perhaps should, be. A timely, valuable collection that deserves widespread attention.’
– John Horgan, Georgia State University, US

‘A Swiss Army penknife of a Research Agenda: chock full of wise advice and eminently practical guidance. All of this is accompanied by a set of elegant essays on the state of terrorism studies; its past achievements; and likely future direction. A major intellectual contribution.’
– Tim Wilson, University of St. Andrews, UK
