Project description. There is an abundance of literature on how terrorist attacks are reported in Europe and the US. It is also well known that terrorist attacks in the Global South receive far less coverage than those perpetrated in the Global North.
The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law has a thriving community of around 30 doctoral students and provides a supportive and friendly environment in which to pursue a research degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology.
This project falls under ASPS’ research theme of Policy, Practice and Peacemaking in Divided Societies. Like terrorism, there is no universally accepted definition of extremism within the academic discourse.
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. Graduate Teaching Assistants hold a unique position in the University, being both registered students and carrying out teaching/teaching support duties.
Criminological research is led by Professor Colin Webster and is conducted within the School of Social Sciences, mainly by staff working in the Crime, Justice and Society research group located within the Centre for Applied Social Research (CeASR).
