Call For Papers

Global approaches to Counter Terrorism are based on collaborative, coordinated and consultative relationships. Interactions such as these have brought about greater levels of shared data than ever before. Yet cooperation is only part of the solution. The understanding of key terrorist phenomena continues to drive global and national counter terrorist agendas, and the constantly morphing incidences of politically motivated violence. With the rise of social media, the increased focus on the security of borders, and the evolution of inter-jurisdictional conflicts, “There has never been a greater need to interpret the haystack of data in order to find the missing needle of terrorist threat.”

The 3rd Australian Counter Terrorism Conference (ACTC 2012) is an opportunity for the cross-disciplinary consideration of a range of both soft and hard approaches to counter terrorism. This year’s theme “reducing the cycle of violence” seeks to incorporate a wide range of studies. From ‘informatics to ideology’, ‘extremism to education’, to ‘politics and law’, the move towards a better-informed counter terrorism community is driven by the expectation of public outcry and the ever-present threat of attack. The 3rd ACTC aims to draw together academics, practitioners, policy makers and experts from across the security domain in a forum to kindle ideas and develop high-level dialogue.

Papers are invited in the following areas, but not limited to:
• Terrorism informatics
• Root cause analysis
• Psychology of terrorism
• Social network analysis
• Contemporary approaches to counter terrorism
• Case studies in terrorism/ counter terrorism
