This project provides academic evidence to inform the refresh of the UK’s CONTEST strategy. It provides a series of literature reviews on key CONTEST topics, led by Dr Sarah Marsden (St Andrews).

The reviews set out the evidence base on specific areas of policy and practice; assess the strength of the research; relate the research to contemporary policy and practice; identify gaps in the evidence base; and describe opportunities for future research. The research questions guiding the project are therefore:

  1. What is the evidence base on priority areas of counter-terrorism policy and practice?
  2. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the research?
  3. What are the implications of contemporary research for policy and practice?
  4. What are future priorities and opportunities for research?
