Yearbook Terrorism 2013 / 2014: Data and Analysis

Yearbook Terrorism (german "Jahrbuch Terrorismus")Terrorism Research and Data collection

Over the last decade, the security relevance of scholarly terrorism research and policy studies has grown significantly. Against this background, ISPK has collected data on terrorist attacks and activities since 2005. This forms the core for an extensive, yearly analysis on strategic developments in terrorism and counterterrorism.

Contributors are both ISPK staff and external experts in their field. The volume both serves as a data collection on terrorist incidents as in-depth analysis of terrorist campaigns.
