How Expert are the Terrorism Experts?

 

Professor David Miller, University of Bath

19 April 2016

 

The talk examined the connections if any between the various schools of terrorism experts and highlight the way in which academic research and think tank activities combine to produce ‘expertise’.  The talk will focus in particular on the concept of radicalisation and the extent to which this is a robust social scientific concept or to which it is a term linked to particular interests and agencies in the counter-terrorism apparatus.
