US counter-radicalisation strategy: the ideological challenge

11 Jan 2012
Description

This paper examines US counter-radicalisation strategy and outlines specific recommendations to counter the ideology behind violent domestic terrorism.

The death of Osama bin Laden and the emergence of the Arab Spring has de-emphasised many political grievances that have driven terrorist attacks in the past. However, jihadist ideology still presents a potent form of rebellion against alienation and US foreign policy. Until the ideology itself, not just its adherents and organisations, is directly challenged, individuals will continue to radicalise and the violent Islamic extremist threat will remain.
