Terrorism is a complex, multifactorial phenomenon. In our analyses of the phenomenon, we pursue an interdisciplinary and theory-driven approach. In our research, we focus in particular on Islamist terrorism in Europe, the similarities between Islamist and right-wing extremist ideologies and the significance of gender for terrorism.

In the field of counter-terrorism, we analyze global and European counter-terrorism strategies - both in terms of security policy and intelligence - and examine their impact on democratic processes.
