RESEARCH

"Supposing is good, but finding out is better." 

Mark Twain

 

Our democracy is robust, but its enemies are many. Most of the papers I have published were born out of necessity to help understand complex terrorism threats in western democracies.  I have therefore sought to contribute towards our knowledge of these threats, improve responses, illuminate the dark corners of our past, or to support contemporary society in alignment with our democratic principles. In all cases, I have sought to challenge common assumptions or misconceptions with empirically grounded and theoretically informed research.

 

Check out the list of my publications below, and don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.
