Center on Terrorism

Friday seminar series continues on 12/4
Our final seminar at the Center on Terrorism this fall semester will be on Friday 12/4 from 10am-noon (not Friday 11/6 as previously advised). 
We will host Dr. Noemie Bouhana who will speak on, "From Why to Where and Back Again: The Ecology of Violent Extremism." Dr. Bouhana is Associate Professor in Security and Crime Science at University College London, where she co-leads the Counter-Terrorism Research Group. Her work centres on the processes involved in the emergence of extremist ecologies in complex social systems, the role that these ecologies play in the development of a terrorist propensity, and the implications of this understanding for risk analysis. Among her recent publications is this report, authored for the UK Commission for Countering Extremism in July last year.
The seminar will again be conducted over Zoom and we ask that you register: click here to do so. Our events are free and open to the public so please feel free to share this announcement with interested colleagues.


Welcome to the Center on Terrorism at John Jay College of Criminal Justice

John Jay College lost 67 students and alumni as a result of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001. The Center on Terrorism at John Jay College was founded in the wake of those attacks and remains the only university-based entity devoted to terrorism research and education in the New York City area. Center researchers have published a range of books, article, chapters and reports covering different aspects of terrorism and counter-terrorism, from an interdisciplinary and policy-relevant perspective. The Center hosts the Friday Seminar Series which brings to the John Jay campus leading researchers and practitioners active in the field. The series is linked to John Jay’s Advanced Certificate in Terrorism Studies which offers a distinctive graduate-level program of study for those seeking to enhance their credentials and better understand terrorism and counter-terrorism.
