Dr Reed’s main areas of interest are terrorism, insurgency, conflict analysis and resolution, military and political strategy and international relations, currently focusing on motivation and strategic communications in addressing the Foreign Terrorist Fighters phenomenon. Prior to joining ICCT, Dr Reed was an Assistant Professor at Utrecht University.
‘The International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT) is an independent think and do tank providing multi-disciplinary policy advice and practical, solution-oriented implementation support on prevention and the rule of law, two vital pillars of effective counter-terrorism.
ICCT’s work focuses on themes at the intersection of countering violent extremism and criminal justice sector responses, as well as human rights related aspects of counter-terrorism. The major project areas concern countering violent extremism, rule of law, foreign fighters, country and regional analysis, rehabilitation, civil society engagement and victims’ voices.
Functioning as a nucleus within the international counter-terrorism network, ICCT connects experts, policymakers, civil society actors and practitioners from different fields by providing a platform for productive collaboration, practical analysis, and exchange of experiences and expertise, with the ultimate aim of identifying innovative and comprehensive approaches to preventing and countering terrorism.’ ICCT website: www.icct.nl
