Radical right extremism is one of the top security concerns for governments on a global scale, with estimates of a three-fold increase in recent years (Global Terrorism Index). Why did this happen? How are terrorism and security evolving today? How can governments tackle extremism and terrorism as well as local and global insurgency and the challenges these pose?
This new MA in Terrorism, Security and Radical Right Extremism is your opportunity to gain an in-depth and cutting-edge understanding of the various approaches to the study of terrorism, security and radical right extremism, as well as how governments are generating public policy responses to these threats.
“Extreme right wing terrorism…is my fastest growing problem. What I am seeing, particularly in the right-wing terrorism space, is an increase in lots of young people being attracted. We are seeing people as young as 13 starting to talk about committing terrorist acts.”
― Neil Basu
The Met assistant commissioner, Britain’s top counter-terrorism officer
