Center for Research on Terrorism and Radicalization


The Center for Research on Terrorism and Radicalization deals with the phenomenon of "terrorism" as well as its causes, effects and countermeasures. The department takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining elements from the political and social sciences as well as psychology and criminology. Coupled with active field research, the resulting findings in the form of regular publications, lectures and research projects offer added value for science, politics, society and practice.



In addition, the department maintains a terrorism database that collects information on terrorist attacks around the world. The georeferenced dataset is available for use by anyone interested via the online interactive terrorism maps site.
