TRENDS Research and Advisory and ICSR have signed an agreement for cooperation in furthering basic and applied research on the study of terrorism, radicalisation and political violence.
ICSR was launched in 2008 to address the need for further research for confronting the challenge of radicalisation and political violence. The idea behind the creation of ICSR was to:
- Combine knowledge and leadership – bringing together the world’s best experts with the policymakers and community leaders who can make things happen.
- Create a global network – reaching across continents and cultures.
- Address causes rather than symptoms – identifying solutions that work in the long-run.
ICSR has become the global hub for more intelligent solutions in countering all forms of radicalisation and political violence. Producing first class, rigorous research, ICSR aims to educate the public and help policymakers and practitioners find more intelligent solutions in dealing with radicalisation and political violence. In addition to research, ICSR facilitates systematic, outcome-driven dialogues, bringing together the world’s leading experts with the people who can make things happen. ICSR also works to nurture leadership through the Atkin Fellowship programme which has created a network of pragmatic and educated young leaders from both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
ICSR also partners with five great academic institutions: King’s College London; the University of Pennsylvania; the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (Israel); the Jordan Institute of Diplomacy; and Georgetown University. And ICSR is affiliated with the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi and the Pakistan Institute for Peace Studies in Islamabad.
