Mathematical modelling to establish the effectiveness of countermeasures to radicalisation
25 March 2013
In the six years since the 7/7 attacks in London by British suicide bombers, the field of counter-terrorism has expanded in both academic and Government circles. Despite this much of the research has been unscientific, with relatively little research being done into whether the countermeasures to radicalisation suggested by Government policy-makers actually work. This project seeks to use computer simulation and network modelling to establish whether measures implemented by Government departments are effective at hindering the radicalisation process, and thus whether they have had the intended impact in terms of preventing terrorism in the UK.
